3-D Glitter Stars

Use our templates to create ornaments in three sizes and a large star to top the tree.




  • Mat board
  • Craft knife
  • Small paintbrush
  • Craft glue
  • Spoon
  • Silver glitter
  • Thick needle
  • Metallic cord (if making ornaments)
  • Wire (if making a topper
  • Star Ornament Template


  1. Step 1

    Print template for the size of star you want to make, and cut out.

  2. Step 2

    For each star, trace template piece twice on the mat board, and cut out with craft knife.

  3. Step 3

    Fit the 4 pieces together. Brush the assembled star with glue, and spoon glitter over it. Let dry.

  4. Step 4

    For the ornament stars, use the needle to poke a hole through the top point, and add a hanging loop of metallic cord. For a tree topper, poke 2 holes halfway up the bottom arm of the star, and thread wire through them to attach to the top of the tree.

    Love the assortment of stars and would love the directions for the other stars.

    The Instructions are not for the star I want to make....:-(

    This posting appears to only have instructions for one of the stars shown. I am interested in seeing the instructions for the other stars.
