Making 3D Paper Star Christmas Ornaments

It's the first day of the Christmas month and today I'll start with smaller Christmas decorations. The most common ornament is the star. This one is very basic, but a little complicated.



  • 4x4 inch pieces of colored paper
  • scissors
  • glue


  1. Take one piece of paper and fold it in half.
  2. Fold across. See photo.
  3. Open the paper and fold diagonally. To do this take one corner to the other side then crease the center. Do the same on the other side.
  4. Open the paper again and then cut half way in on the four sides. Refer to image attached.
  5. Following these cuts, make the two sides meet towards the center. See photo.
  6. Do the same to all four sides. You will be able to form something like this.
  7. Now, place one on top of the other. Secure it with glue.
  8. Do this to the remaining parts. Now, you have a 4 point star.
  9. When you flip, it will look like this.
  10. Make another to complete a set.
  11. Then, apply glue on the flat portion and stick the two stars together where tips are in windmill position.
  12. Make more of these (you can make different colors). Attach a string on one tip and hang it in your Christmas tree.
