Take the pentagon shape to make the 5 point star.
Fold the pentagon shape in the centre from all the pointed sides.
Now you will get the centre point of the pentagon along with the crease lines
Fold up the bottom edge so that the two corners meet the crease lines which are above the centre you have just made.
Unfold again, and then make the same fold for all the other sides of the pentagon, so that you have a set of creases like this.
Here you can see the folded lines showing the star shape.
Fold in the left edge along one of the creases you just made. Then fold up the bottom edge, at the same time pulling the corner of the pentagon out to the left like this. Squash the fold flat.
Refer to the image.
Unfold completely. Rotate the pentagon 1/5th of a rotation so that the next side is at the bottom, then repeat the folds as in the image above.
Do the same thing for all the rest of the sides of the pentagon.
When you’ve finished you will have a new set of creases that look something like this.
Starting with the pentagon completely unfolded, pinch all the corners together
Squash all the pointed edges toward the center.
With a bit of “massaging” the paper will collapse into a star shape.
Refer to the image.
When you will squash the corners toward the center.
Turn over the star.
Fold in the right edge to the center line, like this.
Fold all the arms towards the centre working clockwise around the star, do the same thing for all the other arms.
Your 5 point star will look like this after folding all the arms.
Your 5 point star will look like this from the rear side.
Make about 8 to 10 such stars of different colors and sizes.
Paint the outline of each star with 3 D outliner glitter silver 402.
Let it dry.
Dangle each star along with few colorful beads using silver cord.
Dangle all the stars with few bead strands on the metal ring.
Create the loop of the silver cord on the topside of the ring to dangle it in your house.
This is an easy origami for kids’ idea. We have made a dangler using this but the stars can be used in various ways, to decorate notebooks, to decorate ceilings and walls, to make ornaments for Christmas tree and more. So get going and share with us the project once you are done.
