Easy DIY Evergreen Stars! Make these simple dollar store evergreen stars in minutes to be ready for the holiday season!
I love having extra greenery around my home during any season, but especially at Christmas time. I usually use a mix of real and faux, and I add it all over the home. So when I wanted to fill a wall with some festive decor, I decided to make some evergreen stars!
This project is one of six holiday decorations we made, and it’s a quick and inexpensive DIY that we did along with other dollar store projects to get ready for the holiday season!

How to Make DIY Evergreen Stars
Step-by-step Tutorial for DIY Evergreen Stars
This project involves creating evergreen stars using supplies from your local dollar store. I found these wired evergreen garland ties at the dollar store, and I knew it that I could use them to try and make some of those really beautiful Scandinavian-type stars that you often see in holiday decor.
These are a steal! There is so much you can do with them, but the star was my favourite idea. I unpacked them all and started attaching them just by twisting all of the ends together to form a long, straight line.
Originally, I thought that I could make this tree just by twisting the pieces together and forming a star. But when I did that, it turned out that the star was actually very flimsy and couldn’t really be held up on the wall or keep its shape as a star, so I went to plan B.
Plan B involved some of these craft popsicle sticks from the dollar store to form a base for the stars.
Start by gluing the craft popsicle sticks together in the star shape that you want.
Take your time and make sure you get a good star shape. If your shape is “off” at this point, the star likely won’t look like a star on the wall after it’s done.
Once you have the star formed out of popsicle sticks and glued together, glue the evergreen pieces on top of those Popsicle sticks stars, bending the garland as needed. Just follow the shape around to form your star, twisting the garlands together as needed.
I made two of these stars so I could hang them near each other on the wall. And I love how they turned out.
They were super simple to make, super affordable, and they definitely add some character onto the wall and give that nice Nordic or Scandinavian vibe.
