Easy Christmas Crafts: Five Point Star


Our Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star project uses those pretty Christmas cards that you don't want to throw away. Our instructions show you an easy way to reuse your cards as pretty decorations - both the cover and the message inside. Let's take a look at how to make an Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star.

First, let's look at an example:

Easy Christmas Crafts: Five Point Star Materials and Tools:

  • Christmas cards
  • Yarn
  • Yarn needle (or use the point of the scissors to make a hole for the yarn)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Compass for drawing circles
  • Protractor for determining the angles
  • or use one of our patterns (3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 6, 7 or 8 inches) found on the Easy Paper Crafts - Five Point Star page
  • Scissors 

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Five Point Star:

Select your card with an interesting picture or pattern that will tell its story in the cut-out star shape. The message inside should be small enough that the words - at least most of them - will be contained in the star.

Draw the star on the back of the image. Size the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star and center it to include as much of the image you want. Use the instructions or one of the patterns found on the Easy Paper Crafts - Five Point Star page.

Cut out the star shape being careful at the outer and inner points.

On the back, use a straight edge to help fold the points along the line. Press the fold only to the center of the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star.

Turn the star over. From the front, fold on the line between the points. Again, fold only to the center point.

After completing all the folds, the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star takes a three dimensional shape.

Follow the same instructions to cut out and fold the card's message into the star shape.

Punch holes in the top point of both Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Stars. Thread a piece of yarn through the holes and knot the ends to make a hanging loop.

This Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star is an easy way to use those old Christmas cards. It's also an inexpensive way to add Christmas decorations to your tree.

But, you don't have to use Christmas cards for the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star. You can use construction paper, card stock, colored printer paper or gift wrapping paper.

You can also use white printer paper and use crayons or markers to develop your own unique decorations. Children would enjoy coloring the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star for decorating the Christmas tree.

Have fun!

People of all ages can enjoy the fun and the decorations of the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Star crafts project.
