Small 3D paper stars
Star has been a well-known symbol of the Christmas since day one. So it isn’t a huge surprise that we’ll kick this list of tutorials off with the cutest red stars. Since they’re relatively easy to make, you’ll need just a few hours to fill your whole home with them (few days for the whole town and a week for the Milky Way galaxy). Just remember that if you are planning to make bigger star-ornaments, it might be smart to keep hot glue gun close-by. Hang them on your tree, tie them together for a garland or maybe fill a nice-looking glass jar with them.
