How to Create Your Own Hollywood Star

Updated March 23, 2017

Here is a unique craft project fit for a star. You can make this Hollywood star for yourself or give it as a gift to that aspiring actor or actress in your life.

Cut the black poster board so that it is in the shape of a square. Next, cut the white poster board into the shape of a star that will fit inside of your square.

Draw the outline of your name, with a small design underneath in pencil on the white star. The design you choose should be something simple that describes yourself, such as a music note, television, camera, paintbrush or something else to personalise your star.

Using the paintbrush, fill in your name, the design, and the outline of the star with glue. Next, sprinkle on the gold glitter and set aside to dry. You can also use some of the black glitter to embellish your design if you choose.

Once the gold glitter has set, use the same glue method to fill in the rest of the star with the pink glitter and set this aside to dry.

Place your star in the centre of the black poster board and glue it in place. Next, mix the black and silver glitter, and use it to cover all areas of the black board that are left showing. Let your star dry overnight.


Frame your Hollywood star for a unique wall hanging in your home.


Glitter can be hazardous to small children and should be used under close supervision.
