Waldorf Inspired Window Stars

I have long admired these beautiful window decorations, but was always intimidated by what I though would be an impossible task. Then I stumbled upon this wonderful tutorial at Garden Mama's blog. It was so easy I couldn't resist giving them a try. I ordered the kite paper from here.

Don't you just love the bright colors? Just what we needed to brighten up the grey winter days we have been having.

The folds were really very easy. The tutorial is great! the kids caught on fast and had all their pieces ready in no time.

Lined up and ready for glue.

The star magically appeared as the pieces were fit together.

All done!

This pictured doesn't do the star justice. It was getting dark out. When the sun is out the star really glows. They add so much merriment to our kitchen. I can't wait to make more. We will be searching for other tutorials and patterns. If we don't find any, we may have to break down and purchase Magical Window Stars.

See what other fun nature inspired activities others are up to at The Magic Onions Friday's Nature Table.


  1. Beautiful. I'm afraid I did break down after seeing another blog's window stars, and I await the postman's visit any day. Hopefull soon we will have a glowing star in our kitchen too.

  2. Wow... they are beautiful. So colorful and bright! Thank you so much for sharing your fun on Friday's Nature Table.
    Blessings and magic.

  3. It is so lovely to see you enjoyed my tutorial Elizabeth! Your star looks beautiful, they truly do bring such color into these wintry days! Warmest wishes to you!

  4. :) I have been thinking we need to purchase that book too. I haven't covered out windows yet but I expect we will soon. You all did a great job!


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
