Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
We love exploring the crafting possibilities of using paper to create 3D art, and origami is a really versatile technique for creating DIY holiday decor. Last year we created simple origami boxes to spruce up your standard string lights, and now we’re showing you how to make these origami stars to fill out your Christmas tree. These origami Christmas ornaments are made with tissue paper, but you can also find gorgeous origami paper online or at your local craft store.
Tools & Materials
- Tissue Papers
Let’s Get Started!
We made our origami Christmas ornaments in the blue from our Fresh Breeze pack as a bold contrast to our flocked white tree. The papers in our tissue packs are frosted with a glittery shimmer, so they are perfect for the holidays. For red or white stars, you can also find our Americana tissue pack in Shop this Project below! Once you pick out your papers, start your origami Christmas ornaments by cutting the papers into squares. We started with 5 and 6 inch squares, but you can use the same tutorial for any size of stars you want to make. Follow our step by step photo or video tutorial as you go – this project is way too tricky to explain in words! It may take a bit to get the hang of it, but once you feel comfortable folding the stars, they are really easy to make.
When you finish your stars, place them on the branches of your Christmas tree to fill any holes. You can really use these stars in any place that needs a festive touch around the house! Find some of our other favorite DIY ornaments in our collection of Christmas projects. Our latest ornament makes include our adorable felt santas, yarn pom pom snowmen and clay snowflakes.

So pretty! I could do it, it’s a little tricky but I made it :). I love and have been doing origami since I was a little girl, so that helped a lot. Thanks for sharing :).

I’ve been doing origami for years, and this is one of the less clear instructions I’ve seen. There need to be more photos of in-between steps as well as written instructions for each step shown. It’s a pretty star, but these instructions make it very difficult to actually make the star.
Its true, there are so many lovely tutorials by true origami experts! We did our best, as this was a tough one to photograph.

I did not get step #5 either, I think it was misleading to show scissors in first picture, I thougt I was to cut paper in half as opposed to folding. 🙁
Good point– I edited the photo template to say: cut in step 1, and fold in step 2.
Thank you for your tutorial. Your stars look wonderful ! At first I had a little bit of a hard time understanding the steps but then I watched this tutorial and between your pictures and the video I succeeded. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbxxFg4HoPI
Oh good, I’m glad you found a video that helped!
they’re truly needs to be some writing in the same box when a fold is made or a cut describing it because for one I can’t tell if you cut or fold a number 2 and then number 3 for the star needs a little bit of an explanation as well as all the other ones just a little explanation up if you voted something some way a corner… For example or if you cut something otherwise it makes no sense and I’m pretty good at doing these things. Just a suggestion as I’m fortunately I cannot make you a star because I cannot tell how you did number 2 at all if you made a folder or a cut so if I can’t get to number 2 I surely can’t get the 3
Hi Jodee, thanks for your comment. I’m sorry it’s confusing– origami tends to be a bit more complicated! We certainly didn’t invent this method and have found a few useful videos online, you may be able to find one to help with those tricky steps.
very nice stars indeed ! I do like very much the colour ! thanks for making my day.
Thanks for your sweet comment, it made me smile 🙂
These are great where can I find you books? Ihavelooked atmy local JoAnn with no luck
Hi Nancy! Some JoAnn stores are too small to carry the kits, but most are available online: http://www.joann.com/baking-and-party/celebrations-parties/?prefn1=brand&prefv1=Lia%20Griffith&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=ANCHOR5&utm_content=HTML&utm_campaign=20160825PD&rId=20160825PD#prefn1=brand&sz=18&prefv1=Lia%20Griffith
