Place the template on the star and fold the prongs inwards.



Glue the prongs together as shown. This would give dimension to your star. You can also decide whether the star should be flat or deep by taping the edges together differently. If one is completely on the opposite edge, then the star would be higher. If you want to glue an ornament on the top it would be better if you glue the edges somehow in the center.



You can embellish the paper star by gluing a piece of glitter garland and a small bead in the center of the star.

Scandinavian Christmas decorations – 3D paper stars

Christmas stars tinker scandinavian paper 3d shape

The big paper stars are classic for the Scandinavian Christmas decorations. They look even more effective with a string of lights in there. Usually these are pinned to the window, but they can also be hung in a corner, on a bare wall, or above the dining table. Whether alone or in a group, these 3D stars are a real eye-catcher!


To make a 7-pointed star, you need to print out the template 7 times.



Then drop the templates. To make folding easier, use a pencil and ruler to score the lines. Fold along the middle so that the right side is facing out. Then fold the flaps.


Apply glue to the outside of the flaps and glue the two templates together to form the star point. Repeat this process to make all 7 prongs.


Then start assembling the star. First make three pairs and then glue them all together. Before you glue the last prong, use a hole punch to make two holes for the string to hang.
