Free Printable Christmas Star Ornaments with Templates is a paid collaborative post with Epson as I am #EpsonAbassador. I wanted to really put the EcoTank ET-7700 through its paces this month, so I designed a free star decoration inspired by the ones I used to make as a child from the previous years Christmas cards. These printable Christmas star ornaments are perfect to add to a Christmas tree and lovely homemade Christmas ornaments.
These paper ornaments are really are easy to make, but look so effective. I went for a green and gold colour scheme with a watercolour feel to it. I was really impressed with the printed colours. The gold colour really shines.
I love that I can see straight away how much ink I have left in the tanks using the windows in front of them and also not having to worry about the ink running out as I am still on the first fill up and I have a full bottle of ink of each colour left and I have printed a lot this month.
If you use our Free Printable Christmas Star Ornaments with Templates we would love to see them. You don’t have to use our printable alternatively you could just cut out stars using a star template make from cardboard op they are all the same size. If you are making these with a group of children then a star paper punch is a great investment as even toddlers can use them.
There are lots of options you could choose to personalise these stars. One I really love is keeping any of kindergarten kids artwork done on cardstock or getting them to draw patterns on white card stock with crayons, pencils or markers and recycling that to make the stars for their parents. They could even add glitter to the front of the star.

How to make Printable Christmas Star Ornaments
Print out and cut out the stars. We used five stars per decoration.
Fold the stars in half – if you look carefully at the printable you will see there is a guideline there. We use an old paper crafting tool to rub over the crease and make it sharp. A ruler will work as well. you want the printed side facing each other.
Now you need to glue the back of the stars together. I prefer a fast grab tacky glue for this as it sticks on contact. If you are doing this with older children then a little hot glue works well or for preschoolers sticky glue dots
Before you glue the last star together, you need to add your twine, ribbon, yarn, thread or a loop of fishing line as this will become the ornament hook, you could even add a bead like we have here. Cut to length, knot it and glue to the spine before opening out your star and glueing the first to the last.
Using your Cricut to cut our Printable Christmas Star Ornaments with Templates
One of the questions I was asked on my Instagram post when I introduced the #EpsonAmbassador post did the Epson EcoTank ET-7700 work with the print and cut facility on the Cricut.
So I put it to the test with this craft and yes it does. It read the print lines perfectly and you can use it with the new paper scorer tool so folding the 3D starts is super simple. Teenagers much prefer using the Cricut with scrapbook paper to make their own rustic ornaments.
If you fancy giving it a go – we have already uploaded the design with the score lines to our Cricut Design Space. I have been delighted with the Epson EcoTank RT-7700 using it for the print and cut facility.
