How to Make a Glamorous Christmas Paper Star

How to make a glamorous paper star.

Holiday decor can be a exactly what your house needs to go from just “your home” to “your home during the holidays.” There is a definite difference between the two! Home during the holidays should feel cozy and warm — they don’t call it decking the halls for nothing, you know.

But holiday decor should also reflect who you are as a person. If you’re not the type of person who likes really traditional decor, but you still want to dress up your home for the festive season, you need some decor with a little pizzazz!

If that’s you to a t, do we have the perfect piece of jazzy Christmas decor for you.

Through our friends at Rumble, PSYmedia has created an uber-glamorous holiday decoration that you can make right at home! That’s right, it’ll look like it’s straight from Pier 1, but no one needs to know you made it yourself just before your Christmas bash.

The decoration is a large, glittery star that’s perfect to hang from tinsel, on your mantle, or even on your tree. We would love to line these up on an empty spread of wall, or maybe even hang them from the ceiling for a “winter wonderland” kind of feel.

Here’s what you’ll need to get start on this fantastic project:

  • Glitter strips
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks

Make sure to watch the video below to get the full instructions for this holiday DIY.

When you’re gathering your supplies, keep in mind that to make this star to its fullest effect, you’ll have to double the amount of materials you use. Two separate stars are made in this project and then hot glued together, to give the final piece a more three-dimensional look.

One thing we’re curious about is where to find glitter strips that make this star. While strips of glitter paper themselves don’t really seem to sell, there are craft stores that sell glitter stock paper. We would highly suggest purchasing this paper in whatever color your fancy and cutting the strips yourselves.

This might seem like a hassle, but consider it a way to get creative with the project! You can choose the color of your star and even cut the size of strips, essentially deciding the size of the star itself. This allows you to vary the colors and sizes of your stars, which could create a really cool affect in your decor.

Create these glamorous stars for any holiday you celebrate, or just general colors for winter! All it takes is a little folding and a little hot glue to make these beautiful pieces of decor, and they’ll look store-bought by the time you’re done.
