Easy Christmas Crafts: Five Point Wooden Star


Our Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star can be easily and inexpensively made using wooden skewers, popsicle sticks, toothpicks or even twigs from the garden. Add a bit of yarn and glue (for the smaller stars) and some simple tools to complete the requirements list.

Take a look at this simple and easy-to-make Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star project:

 The five point wooden star is simple and can be easily made in different sizes.

Easy Christmas Crafts: Five Point Wooden Star Materials and Tools:

  • String (or yarn) five pieces, each approximately 10-12 inches long
  • Ruler  (needed if you are cutting the wooden pieces to equal length) 
  • Scissors
  • Glue (only needed for the smaller stars) 

Take a look at the simple materials and tools shown here.

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

Cut the five pieces of string or yarn. We used #10 crochet yarn. Each piece should be 10 to 12 inches long and will be used to tie the endpoints together.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 1 cut the yarn pieces

Cross two of the wooden skewers 1 1/2 inches from their ends to form the upper portion of an "A" shape.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 2 cross two skewers

Add the third skewer across the first two less than halfway down the shape.

For larger stars, weave the skewers as you add them to insure the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star stays together when finished.

Smaller stars, where the wooden pieces are too short to allow weaving, will require glue at the points in the picture shown after we complete this larger star.

The third skewer goes across under the left wooden skewer and over the right wooden skewer. At the top the left wooden skewer is under the right.

Each skewer alternates under and over the other two.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 3 add third skewer across the first two

Add the fourth skewer. Again, alternate the over and under pattern to weave the wooden pieces together.

Add the fifth skewer making sure all of the skewers alternate over and under.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 5 add fifth skewer

Place the five pieces of yarn under the five crossed endpoints of the star.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 6 place yarn under crossed ends

Bring the yarn around each of the crossed points and tie a simple knot to hold the endpoints initially.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 7 tie half knot in each yarn

At each point, wrap the yarn vertically and horizontally around the crossed wooden skewers. Tie the yarn securely.

Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star step 8 wrap and secure yarn around each point

Trim the yarn from each of the points of the Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star.

With the weaving of the wooden skewers, the yarn is all that is needed to hold this Easy Christmas Crafts Five Point Wooden Star together.

For smaller versions, glue is needed at the star's inner points as shown by the arrows in the next picture. This smaller star was made with the wooden skewers cut into six-inch lengths. At that length, this wood was too firm to be woven. Without glue at the star's inner points, the upper "A frame" pulls away from the lower section.
