Now you will learn how to make a giant star. For this craft idea you have to get a large wooden board (1.2mx 1.2m) and cut an arrow template from cardboard. To make the template, first cut off a piece of 120 x 120cm cardboard. Using a ruler, draw a center line to split the square in half. From below the beginning of the line, measure 24cm upwards and mark the spot with a dot. Then from the same starting point measure 35cm to the left and right, along the edge of the square. Once you have marked these two points, connect all three points with lines so that an isosceles triangle has formed. Measure 82cm from the top of the triangle and mark the spot with another point. Then connect that point to both points at the bottom of the square and you will get an arrow. This is your template.

To trace the star on the wooden board, also divide the board by means of a vertical center line and center the arrow template on it with the point upwards. As soon as you have drawn the arrow outline, turn the template to the left so that the lower left tip of the arrow fits into the lower right tip of the already drawn outline. Trace the second contour. Use a cordless jigsaw to cut the star figure out of the wooden panel. Then place the chosen boards next to each other until you have enough space for the wooden star. Draw the star contour on it and cut off each board according to the contour lines. Finally glue the boards to the wooden board and let them dry.
