Window Stars - My Favorite Quick Craft

When I need to decorate for the holidays, one of my favorite things to do is create a variety of stars that can be put on the windows.

4 Autumn Stars

The paper is translucent, so when the shines the pattern is revealed.

Some of the stars are easy to make with only 4 folds per point while others are significantly more complex with 24 folds per point.

The fewest number of points are 5 and the highest number is 16...so some stars only have under 25 folds while others can have well over 200 folds.

Window Stars for Thanksgiving


With autumn here, these are some of the stars that I have made through the years to decorate the windows.

These are such beautiful stars! Window stars are one of our household's favourite crafts... Although ours are not so elaborate! Have you ever considered doing a series of tutorials on Etsy for people to buy? Or making an e-book? I am sure it would be a success!
