3D Paper Star

A 3D paper star might just be the thing you were looking for to add some Christmas feeling around the house! Children love Christmas decorations and seeing their own put up around the house will make them very proud.

Three dimensional paper craft decorations look very attractive hanging in your windows or on your Christmas tree. They're surprisingly easy to make and you can decorate them in various ways!

You don't need much material to make these stars and even very young children will have fun making them.

Follow our step-by-step instructions below and enjoy your homemade Christmas decorations!

Time needed:

30 minutes

What you need:

  • coloured card or thick paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glitter glue, stickers, felt tip pens etc to decorate the star
  • pin
  • cord

1. Draw two stars onto the coloured card and cut them out. Decorate both stars with glitter glue or stars. Let it dry.

2. Carefully cut one star from a point to its centre. Cut the other star from between two points to its centre.

3. Align the cuts and slide the stars together. Make a small hole where the stars meet and thread a cord through to hang them up.
