Autumn Window Star Tutorial for A Child’s Dream

I’ve just created a new tutorial for A Child’s Dream blog – Autumn Window Star! A Child’s Dream is truly my favorite shop for all things Waldorfy arts and crafts.

Head right on over for the tutorial or stick around for some extra photos. (I’ll link to the tutorial again at the end).

There are so many intricate-looking window stars you can make, but for some reason the simple giant ones have my heart. I just love how big they are and how much more light passes through them compared to window stars with more folds.

You can buy the kite paper for making window stars at A Child’s Dream. They come in packs of 100 and you’ll use 8 sheets of paper to make this star.

I also have a video tutorial for this style of window star inside my Toymaking Magic subscription if you prefer *watching* how to make one.

I love how the autumn window star casts a shadow in our homeschool room. If you love this style of Waldorf rhythm chart pictured above, check out Tiny Acorn Atelier. She sells gorgeous Waldorf-inspired original printable artwork, including rhythm charts.

So many pictures of window stars are taken with beautiful scenery in the background. But if you’re like me, don’t feel bad if you are actually making the stars to distract from ugliness outside the window, LOL!!

This window star was inspired by Halloween! I love color too much to limit myself to orange and black. My kids do not agree that my choices look like Halloween colors though…Hahaha!
