  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 1
    Step 1

    This isn't the real picture but I don't have enough space.
    Ok you need two straws to start off with.
    If your using a bendy straw pull the straw straight.
    I'm using thin straws.
    You can label the straws A and B its much easier.

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 2
    Step 2

    Now put the two straws together.
    You just stick the straw into the other straw.
    When its in try and make a square shape in it.
    The straw doesn't have to be straight inside the hole.

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 3
    Step 3

    Bend the square to make a triangle.
    The straws go up and it makes a V
    don't make it go down.
    I labelled it A and B
    The straw is facing your way so it's easier for you to make it =)

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 4
    Step 4

    Bend B on top of the triangle horizontally.

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 5
    Step 5

    It should now look like two triangles making a square.
    Bend the invisible triangle(Not the triangle you made first)
    behind the first triangle you made.
    on the bottom of the triangle it should have a slot. If not it means you bent it the wrong way.

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 6
    Step 6

    repeat step 4 and 5, 5 times.
    You should now have 6 triangles.
    Get the first triangle(The first triangle you made)
    and slide it in the last triangles slot.
    It should look like a star now.

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 7
    Step 7

    Get the A straw and put it on top of the next triangle.
    Get the B straw and put it on top of the A straw and the next triangle.
    Then get the B straw and put it on the next triangle.
    Get the A straw and put it on top of the B straw and the next triangle.
    You dont put it on the very top of the triangles you put them on the straight side of the triangle.
    Keep doing this till you have an inch of the straw left.

  • How to make a model. Drinking Straw Star - Step 8
    Step 8

    Tuck the top straw in a nearby slot.
    And pull tight.
    Cut the end of the straws as short as you want.
    And you got yourself a Drinking Straw star =)
    Goodluck.
    And show me what you made!
    If you have any questions ask me =)
    You can try different colored straws!
