Star of wonder, star of light…

November 10, 2010

There is so many craft ideas for stars I am spoilt for choice. Here’s a few of my stars

This finish paper star is made from eskismo kisses paper by basic grey. Paper really needs to either be double sided pattern or all one colour both sides. This one was made from strips of paper about 6″ x 1/2″, instructions are here

This pin star is similar to the snowflake yesterday, dressmaker pins with glass ends have beads added and are then pushed into the edges of the wooden stars and glued in place. My stars were already painted gold and I stacked up different sizes.

Back to paper for this paper star from the magic onion. This was so simple, just a quick bit of folding, cutting and then sticking. I used 6″ square patterned paper.

 

 

Beaded star, this is my own pattern, using a mixture of bead sizes and beading wire. It uses 10 beads for the centre for a 5 pointed star.

Moving onto felt the white and red beaded star is made from hand sewing the beads on one side, then stitching two felt stars together. The ‘C’ star is made from one of the same stars. The C and holly was cut from a quickutz alpha on my cuttlebug and stitched in place along with the beads for the berries. The red felt is then cut to size and hand stitched together with the hanging ribbon sandwitched in between the two layers. I’ve made these for each of the kids and I’ve mounted them on their christmas card.

 

 

Other Ideas

If you like the finnish star then here’s a couple more to try from hemidemsemiiquaver and Yours til Niagara Falls which uses thin strips of wood but i think the same pattern could be made with paper.

Zencrafting have a tutorial for an origami star.

Wee folk art have a kite paper star I think caitlin will enjoy making these with me.

Another one to do with the kids – get those loo rolls/kitchen rolls out again for this star

To make a German paper star there’s a good tutorial here make a few and you can make them into a wreath

Gluesticks have a different paper star wreath here

Lastly Martha Stewart has a tutorial for ribbon stars
