Last Minute Christmas Decoration: Stars

December 17, 2014Elena aka. Midsommarflicka

Hello there! Elena’s here again.
So have you already decorated everything for Christmas? I’ve made the last things just this past weekend… In case you’re just as far-sighted planning as me, here are some last minute christmas decoration ideas! How about stars? Stars are great for christmas, aren’t they?

(Please remember to pin the individual projects from their original site! Thanks!)

You could for example just take some branches to create easy and natural ones. Erlend has a sweet little tutorial for DIY Stick Stars:

Or stick some tape to your windows. You could use Masking Tape like in this tutorial or washi tape in classic christmassy or fun neon colors… (This blog is German, but it’s so easy that it’s possibly enough to see the pictures. Or you could use google translate!)

Another great idea for recycling and upcycling are these stars from old milk cartons:
(This blog is in Hungarian. But tit’s as easy as the German above so pictures and maybe google translate will be sufficient!)

Another version, made from paper are these folded stars, which get a 3D-look:

These here look very similar, they are also folded from paper and have a 3D-look, but they do have five tips. And also I’m not very decisive, as you may already know by now… So in case of doubt I give you ALL THE TUTORIALS! ;)

What comes naturally next, when we’re already talking about folding paper? Yes! Origami Stars! These look really awesome, from both sides, which makes them also great as ornaments!

I think, I’ve shown these before, in the Paper Strip Crafts Roundup, but they are too cute to miss them in this roundup: Little Origama Lucky Stars. And I love them made from book pages, but the clear ones also look really awesome, don’t they?

Here’s a tutorial by yours truly: German Froebel Stars, or Fröbel as we would write ;)
I also tell a bit about its history in my post!

Okay, for those of you, who dont like working with paper, I also have something for you!
Maybe you like working with wood? Then you could make a Cut Out Wood Star!

And here’s an even different kind of star, made by our dear Allison – An Elegant Beaded Snowflake as she says. Which totally could also be a star, if you want it to be one!

And last, but not least, here are some ideas for the crochet-fans among us:
At first, a crochet tutorial that also shows how cute they look as garland!

Because we won’t be talking again before Christmas:
I WISH YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS TIME!

I’ll see you all again on “Silvester” (our New Years Eve here in Germany). Until then!
