As the snow continues to fall outside of our windows we gather together at the table to create Waldorf inspired kite paper stars. These paper window stars will brighten your home any time of year. For our family it is in this time when the palette outside of our windows are wintry and monochromatic that we aspire to bring the warmth of color back into our days. I look forward to sharing this Waldorf-inspired kite paper star tutorial for you and your family!
I purchased a pack of Kite Paper here. There are many Waldorf-inspired art stores online that will carry packs of this type of paper.
I. Choose eight pieces of paper.
II. Lay out one square of paper.
IV. Now fold your paper in half once again forming a smaller square shape.
V. You may now open up this square shape and you will be left with creases that will form four smaller squares within the larger square.
XI. Continue this step by step process until you make 8 points for your window star.
XII. The next step is to glue your star together. Use very little dots of glue, a glue stick would work even better. Start with your first color and add glue into the lower right hand corner. The next piece will line up against the center fold and proceed to glue the two together.
Now have your children help you find the perfect spot in your home where you can capture the warmth and beauty of the sun through your stars. A small dab of glue at the very tip will hold your star to the window and washes off very easily.
I would love to know if you make kite paper stars for your own home! I hope to stock a few in my shop, for custom color creations, please email me!
Wishing You Warmth And Light!
