This DIY 3D star wreath craft is easy to make and can be customized to fit any holiday or occasion with different colors and decorations.
My youngest is on a crafting kick and if the craft can be used as decorations for a holiday or season, I’m even more supportive of it. I love these 3D stars and the red, white and blue stars feel summery. Use this for the Fourth of July or Labor Day.
Supplies for the 3D Paper Star Wreath
- Colored construction paper or card stock
- Craft foam or a wreath base
- Sharpie or gel/felt tip pens
- Craft glue
- A pair of scissors
How to Make the 3D Paper Star Wreath:
Step 1: Prepare the wreath base; we’re using a round base for our wreath. You can use store bought wreath base or prepare one from cardboard or thick craft foam. Use a burlap fabric strip or lace to wrap the wreath base.
Step 2: Wrap the wreath base evenly to cover its surface.
Step 3: Once the whole wreath base is covered, apply glue on the open end to secure the wrapping.
Step 4: Select red, blue and white craft papers to make the 3d stars. (You can use any colors you prefer.) Take any one of the selected papers and shape it into a square.
Step 5: Fold the square paper into half.
Step 6: Bring the right (closed) corner down by aligning its short side with the open long side of the current paper.
Step 7: Unfold the last fold.
Step 8: Now, bring the right (open) corner up by aligning its short side with the closed long side.
Step 9: Unfold the last fold. Notice that the last 2 folds have created an X crease.
Step 10: Bring the opposite right closed corner and join it with the intersected point of the X crease.
Step 11: Fold the last folded part in half by aligning its open (inner) side with its closed (outer) side.
Step 12: Align the closed side of the square part (of the current pattern) with the triangle part inside.
Step 13: Now, fold the current pattern in half.
Step 14: Notice the straight open side of the triangle part; use it as a tracing line. Cut off the extra parts using a pair of scissors.
Step 15: Unfold the whole pattern.
Step 16: Fold the longer creases upwards and push the shorter crease between the long ones but downwards. This will form a 3d star pattern.
Step 17: Next, make more 3d stars using 2 or 3 different sizes of paper and colors (blue, red and white).
Step 18: Gather the crafted 3d stars, wreath base and craft glue.
Step 19: Attach the 3d stars on the wreath base using craft glue.
Step 20: Finally, you can either cover the whole wreath base with the 3d stars or leave some space open on your wreath.
