DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland

I have a total Charlie Brown Christmas tree. It’s fake, and my husband and I bought it at Walgreens last year. Very classy, I know.

It’s actually really petite and adorable, although you can see right through it. That’s part of the charm though, right?

I love doing a project or two to add to my Christmas stash every year, and I thought that a homemade garland would complement my tree’s quirks. My DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland turned out so cute that I thought I’d share it with you!

It’s been a while since I’ve done origami, so this was a fun project. I used the Lucky Star pattern, which is super easy once you get the hang of it.

The best thing about this DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland is that you don’t need origami paper. Regular old printer paper works, as do magazine pages and other decorative papers.

After I created about a bajillion of these little guys, I used a little string to create the DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland. It turned out so sweet, and the stars are perfectly wonky, just like my tree!

I found a tutorial for these Lucky Stars on Origami Fun. Head over there for additional visuals, if you need more help.

Start by cutting a bunch of strips of paper. You can use a scissors for this or a utility knife if you want to be more precise. The strips should measure about 1/2-inch wide and about 11 – 12 inches long.

Tie a knot in the end of the strip. Pull the end to tighten it up.DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland tutorial ... an easy origami Christmas garland that's fun to make and the perfect addition to your holiday tree! | Hello Little Home Tuck the short end of the strip into the fold.DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland tutorial ... an easy origami Christmas garland that's fun to make and the perfect addition to your holiday tree! | Hello Little Home It should resemble a pentagon.

Wrap the long end of the strip around the pentagon, following its contours, until you reach the end of the strip.

Tip: Avoid making sharp folds as you wrap the paper. This will make it easier for the star to puff up later.DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland tutorial ... an easy origami Christmas garland that's fun to make and the perfect addition to your holiday tree! | Hello Little Home Tuck in the end so you have a self-enclosed pentagon.DIY Origami Lucky Star Garland tutorial ... an easy origami Christmas garland that's fun to make and the perfect addition to your holiday tree! | Hello Little Home Use your finger to make a crease in the middle of each pentagon side. The star should pouf up as you make the creases.

It took me a few tries to get these little stars to behave, so don’t give up right away. Once you get the hang of it, they go really quickly.

The garland for my little tree took about 90 stars, which took about an hour to fold. So get comfortable with your favorite TV program!

Next, cut a long piece of string (the length will depend on how long you want your garland) and thread it through your needle.

Pierce the needle through the side of the star. Pull it all the way through and slide the star to the opposite end of the string. Reshape the star, if necessary.

Repeat with the remaining stars, spacing them about an inch-and-a-half apart on the string.

These are so adorable! I was at work yesterday when I read this post, and I totally busted out some notebook paper and folded one at my desk. I think I’m going to cuddle up on the couch with a Lifetime Christmas movie and make a strand of these 🙂

Oooooh these are totally cool! I bet my little guy will love making these – he knows how to make paper boats and hats, but stars are going to get him very excited! 😀
