Paper Star Ornaments Part 2

For part one,click here

After both sides are coated with glue, insert shorter piece inside longer piece. It should look like this:

Continue gluing remaining pieces:

Now, all of the pieces will be glued together. Apply glue to top of folded piece, as shown here:

Place next piece on top of glue. It should look like this:

Continue until all pieces have been glued together. Star should now look like this:

Now, apply glue as before and pull other side around to make a star shape. The star should now be completely formed as pictured here:

Make a hole in the top for hanging.  I used a hole punch:

Add some ribbon or thread for hanging and the star is finished!

I’ve enjoyed experimenting with different colors of paper, stamping on paper, adding words, etc. Try different numbers of segments, adding glitter or whatever else you can think of!

    Lovely, myself and my children loved making these and they are so affective, we hung them on some white paper chains we made the night before.
