How To Make a Window Star

Hello everybody! I’m back! And with a tutorial for you. We make these Window Stars in the winter time because they are fun colors, and winter is not.😊

So, let’s get started!

For this project, you will need:

  • Paper. You are suppose to make these out of kite paper, which is what I used, but tissue paper works just as well. You can also use regular paper, it just won’t light up in the window, so those are better for just hanging on the wall. Either way, you need 8 pieces that are perfect squares.
  • Tape or a glue stick.

Start with the first color you’ll be doing.

Fold it in half, then un-fold it.

Do that the other way as well.

Now fold in the corners, using the folds as guides.

Now fold the first side in like this:

Do the same on the other side.

Put a little bit of tape or glue in the center of the folds to hold it in place.

Now do that seven more times!

Once you have all the points done, you can start assembling your star.

Put some tape or glue on the first point, like this:

And stick the second point on, lining it up with the crease in the center. Like this:

Continue this until you get to the last point.

Your first and last points should line up like this.

To add the last point, do the same thing as you did for the other ones, only lifting the first point over the last one like this:

And you’re done!

Hang it in your window to see it light up!

Like I said in the beginning, you can use many different types of paper and colors. You can also make different sizes. Have fun experimenting!

And to sign us off, I want to say that I did start reading the Hunger Games with my friend, and I absolutely LOVE it! We finished the first book, and are about halfway through the second one. We did watch the first movie after the first book, but, sadly I was really disappointed. It wasn’t really like the book at all, Katniss seemed to have everything she needed, and the wounds were not very intense. The muttation part near the end was the most disappointing though, because to me that was the scariest part in the book, and I really was looking forward to seeing how they actually looked on screen. And the Cornucopia was just weird. I mean, come on , they couldn’t have made it gold? But, all that said, it was a good movie, and I would watch it again, for sure, I just like the book much better. Reading it also gave me a new confidence in archery, though! The first week I went after finishing the book I got a straight on bulls-eye!

Hope you enjoyed!
