Easy Christmas Crafts: Five-Point Paper Cone Star


Simple paper, glue and ribbon become a fun and easy five-point paper cone star to hold a small gift or just be a pretty decoration.

First, let's look at some examples.

The first one is a yellow five-point paper cone star made using yellow card stock paper with glitter accented green tissue paper inside.

The next version is made with green and white card stock and holds green curled ribbon inside as a fun decoration.

  • Tissue paper, ribbon or other decoration for inside the cone 
  • Ribbon (narrow 1/8 to 1/4 wide)
  • Ruler
  • Hole punch 
  • Glue
  • Scissors 
  • Five-Point Paper Cone Star pattern

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

Print the Five-Point Paper Cone Star pattern and cut out the shape from the decorative paper.

Card stock makes a strong cone for holding small gifts.

If you just want the cone for a decoration, 20-pound paper works too.

The paper needs to hold its shape along the folds to show off the five-point star.

Five-point paper cone star step 1 cut out shape

Begin folding the cone shape by following the lines as indicated on the pattern.

Use the ruler (or another firm straight edge) to help make the folds. 

Five-point paper cone star step 2 begin folding on cone lines

All of the cone lines should be folded inward. 

Five-point paper cone star step 3 finish folding cone lines

Begin folding on the star lines.

These folds are in the opposite direction to the cone folds. 

Five-point paper cone star step 4 begin folding star lines

The star line folds should be at right angles to the cone.

Five-point paper cone star step 5 finish folding star lines

Place glue along the small edge of the cone.

Be careful not to use too much glue. 

Five-point paper cone star step 6 glue cone edge

Overlap the edges of the cone matching the straight edge of the cone to the folded edge of the small glue area.  

Allow the glue to set.

Five-point paper cone star step 7 let cone shape dry

Punch a hole in the overlapped edges for the ribbon hanger. 

Five-point paper cone star step 8 punch hole for ribbon loop

Cut an 8 to 10 inch piece of narrow ribbon 

Five-point paper cone star step 9 cut ribbon

Insert the ribbon through the punched hole in the cone.

Fold the ribbon in half, and tie a knot in the ends to form a loop.

Five-point paper cone star step 10 make hanging loop

Add decorative paper or ribbon inside the five-point paper cone star for some bling.

This star has a silver and gold holographic cellophane for an added decorative touch.

The cellophane, though, would not hold its shape inside the cone like the tissue paper did.

I had to use glue in the base of the cone to hold the cellophane.

For the curling ribbon in the example above, I inserted the ribbon curls through the hanging loop such that the curls would not fall out.

 

Five-point paper cone star step 11 insert decoration

Here's the fun and easy five-point paper cone star finished and hanging on display.

Of course, this little paper cone star can hold — and hide — small gifts right under the noses of the receivers.

Or, fill them with bright candies or a few nuts.

This pretty little star cone can hold small and fun gifts for guests at holiday parties, too.

Have fun!

Fun, fast and easy, you can make a few, several or many of the five-point paper cone star decorations in not a lot of time.
