Origami Star as DIY Christmas Decorations

Origami Star

I was going through my Pinterest pins and found a board where I pinned craft ideas. One of these ideas was an origami star so that one Christmas I will try to do it. The Christmas season had started so I thought of trying to do this star.

I went on youtube and typed in “origami star” and watched a random one. The first one I did, didn’t come out perfect and was a bit discouraged that maybe I am not good at it. Many times I have been told that it doesn’t have to be perfect on the first try, it takes practice to get it perfect. Somehow I still expect to be so good to get it perfect on the first try.

I tried doing the second one and it came out to be perfect, so I did some more. The only modification I did on the stars is that I have used magazine papers instead of buying craft paper. The reason being that I love crafts where I get to upcycle materials.

My origami stars

One of the things that I love about Christmas is crafts. My most favorite crafts are the ones where you get to upcycle materials. This year I have been doing origami stars out of magazine papers. It's easy to do, ie. if I can do it so can you. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube. However if you wish that I share the link of the one I've followed, let me know. Have you been doing any crafts lately?

Ideally, I should have found very colourful magazine papers. However, since I was planning to place them on the indoor palm tree which we are currently using it also as a Christmas tree, it shouldn’t matter.

What crafts have you tried this Christmas? I would love to learn something new!
