Thanksgiving Window Star - Art Every Day Month - Day 1

This is the first day of Art Every Day Month (AEDM). Last year I participated in it and completed a lot of projects that I had wanted to do, but had not made time to do prior to AEDM.

Today, I made a window star to decorate the home for Thanksgiving. It is made from brown translucent paper. When the sun shines through the paper, it reveals the pattern.

Each point is folded 11 times. There are 16 points, so that makes 176 folds to make the star.

I plan to make some more window stars throughout the month to add to the window by the dining room table.
