This warm Christmas scene takes place in sunny Cape Town, South Africa were it’s currently summer. That’s why we went with a bright fabric for our star. Not to worry though, this DIY Christmas star tutorial will work for any style of Christmas decor. Just pick upcycled fabric that matches your preferred style.

To make a DIY Christmas star you will need:

  • Unused fabric, can be from old pants, leftover fabric cutoffs, or get creative at your local thrift store.
  • Cereal boxes
  • Printed paper star templates – found here
  • Spray mount adhesive
  • Fabric glue or glue stick
  • Scissors

Step 1: This paper star template has 3 options for the star size. Decide what size star you’d like to make and print out the relevant templates.

Step 3: After your paper star templates are glued to the cardboard you can cut around the borders. Now fold the templates according to the marked out lines. Be sure to fold the outer edges back. These will be used to attach the star points together.
