German Star Tutorial is one of my favorite projects and by far my most popular post.
So, I thought I would re-post for those interested in making some of these very pretty paper stars this year.
|Un-waxed blue stars and waxed white stars decorate my white feather tree.|
This is how the blue stars look when they have been waxed. The paper becomes darker. Glitter has been sprinkled on while the wax is still wet for an added sparkle.

If you are giving stars as gifts, you might want to include a card. I created a FREE printable for you with a place for the recipient’s name on the front, a little history about the stars on the inside and storage suggestions on the back. Get your printable by clicking German Folded Paper Stars Gift Card.
These waxed stars are displayed outdoors on my porch.
Even covered with snow the waxed stars survived 🙂
Waxing German Stars
The finished stars were traditionally dipped in paraffin to help withstand outside elements and make them more durable. For the how-to, click Dipping German Stars in Wax to see how I dipped my stars in wax.
