Learn how to make Scandinavian fabric stars with our step-by-step tutorial. You use four fabric strips to make these stars and can use one, two, three or four different fabrics! In this tutorial, I’m using four (4) fabrics from the same line, so the colors go well together.
These are sometimes referred to as Scandi Stars and were originally made with paper. Making them with fabric results in a thicker star. They can be tree ornaments or tied on packages for a decoration. I make ornaments each year that start as package decorations and can hang on the tree in future years. You can make these stars in any size! For the tutorial, I made stars that started with 2-inch strips of fabric.
It’s easy to make these stars lots of different sizes. You’ll cut four (4) strips for each Scandinavian fabric star.

These ornaments are a perfect scrap busting project! If you’ve got some left over strips of fabric, put together some unlikely mixes and make some great ornaments like I did here.
Or, use coordinating holiday inspired fabrics and make special ornaments for packages and decorations. I purchased four (4) fat quarters which made sixteen (16) 2-1/2 inch finished ornaments.
