Christmas Craft: 3d-Star Wreath Tutorial


MATERIALS:
  • 8 sheet craft paper, different patterns ( I used for different patterns but did not use all the stars I cut out)
  • Star stencil, the larger the star the better
  • Popsicle stick
  • Any template with a straight groove ( I use my paper cutter & removed the blade for this project)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Embellishments of any sort, buttons, beads, glitter stickers (whatever you have)
  • Poster board (I choose white..your choice)
  • Ribbon


All 5 points scored top-to-bottom

DIRECTIONS:

Trace and cut out your stars (I used 36 total, but it may vary depending on size stencil you choose)

Line up you cut star with the groove. With the tip of Popsicle stick run it inside the groove from tip-to-bottom all the way down, do this for every point of your star


Folding your star

Fold the patterned sides together *I want the green side to be my front, so I will fold it the way the red is showing for now*

Do this with all 5 points


Folding from center to tip

Now to make it "3D"...


With the patter you wish to be the front; Fold from the center of your star to the tip along your scored line to pop out the star

Finished 3D-Star

Your star will now have a 3D look!




Stack em' and make em' pretty

I added buttons and beads for the centers but whatever you have on hand will do. I used a hot glue gun for the job. I also stacked two stars together.




I used a drop of hot glue in the center & topped it with another star. I then traced the star shape in a circle & cut it out to make the base of the wreath. I hot glued one corner of a finished star & so on until I completed a circle. Then added ribbon to hang, also attached with hot glue


Finished Wreath
