instead of leaving pointy ends I finished them with an E-bead and straight pin secured with glue-for the hanger I used an eye pin with an e-bead and made hangers from some copper wire I had on hand.  I really like the finished look of these,after making three I realized I didn't really like the size so I  reduced the pattern by 50%  the smaller ones are a much better size for the tree

These are really beautiful, and I love that they are recycled. The beaded points are a really nice touch.

 Maybe an hour- the longest part is cutting out all of the pieces 21 for each ornament, then scoring and folding, you could cut out all the pieces in advance to cut down on crafting time also I would use the pattern in the original size, it would be easier for those with arthritis- I used white glue and hot glue to assemble- The white glue was used to assemble the points and the core-and then hot glue to assemble the points to the core

I remember making something similar in school in maybe fifth or sixth grade and I was just thinking about them! They look great.

So very cool! I made Moravian paper stars and it was very time consuming but well worth the effort. I might have a go at these  Smiley
