Can You Make Easy Origami Stars

28 views  •  6 Sep 2023

Creating Easy Origami Stars

Origami doesn't have to be daunting. Sometimes, the final result may seem nearly impossible to achieve, but fear not! With a few straightforward steps, you'll be crafting these exquisite stars in no time.

Once you've grasped the technique, you can fashion stars in various sizes. The smaller ones are perfect for tree ornaments, while a larger star can serve as an impressive alternative to a traditional wreath.

You're not confined to using origami paper for these creations, but ensure that the paper you choose is sufficiently thin for easy folding.


What you need to make easy origami stars

  • Papers; enough to make fifteen squares at 70 x 70mm (2 3/4 x 2 3/4in) each
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Step Eight

Fold the shape in half vertically and press. This constitutes one completed point of your star. If you tilt the left edge of the point toward you, you'll see two open slots. We just need to assemble our easy origami stars now.

Slot Fifteen Of The Origami Star Shapes Together

Continue crafting the points of the star, following steps 1-8. Once you have fifteen points, fit them together by inserting the front of one point into the slots on the back of another.

Step Ten

Assemble the points until you have a full star shape. To finalise the origami star, use glue or sticky tape to secure the points in place. We have finally finished one of our easy origami stars.


Make a Star Wreath

Our origami star can serve as a fantastic alternative to a traditional wreath. Simply use 150mm (6 inch) square papers and follow the same steps to create a larger version of our decoration. Hang it on your door, above the mantel, or incorporate it into a table centerpiece for a striking display.
