Origami Window Stars

Here’s another project from my current class that’s about bringing some light into our drab winters: origami window stars!

These range from easy to more difficult, but everyone can manage at least the simplest one. (I don’t enjoy the really complex origami myself.)

You’ll need translucent/transparent origami paper, so it will let the light through and so that you get that wonderful layered effect at the places where the paper overlaps!

Here’s a blog post with step by step instructions:

In this blog post, she’s using kite paper, which I haven’t tried, but it certainly seems to work. Kite paper and the translucent origami paper are both available on amazon. I wasn’t able to find it in any local art, craft or paper store!

Here’s the kit we bought, it came with the origami paper and an instruction book.
