How to draw a star?

Drawing a star is a fun and creative way to add some flair to your artwork or crafts. Whether you want to create a simple five-pointed star or a more complex design, with a little practice and patience, you can learn to draw a star that looks great.

In this article, we will guide you step-by-step on how to draw a star.

Materials Needed:

A pencil
A piece of paper

Step 1: Draw a Circle

Start by drawing a circle in the center of your paper. This circle will be the base for your star. You can use a compass or a round object to help you draw a perfect circle, or you can freehand it if you prefer.

Step 2: Draw a Line from the Circle’s Center to the Edge

Draw a line from the center of the circle to the edge. This line will act as a guide for the rest of your star. Make sure that the line is straight and goes through the center of the circle.

Step 3: Draw a Second Line

Draw a second line that starts at the edge of the circle and intersects with the first line you drew at a 60-degree angle. This line should be the same length as the first line.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3

Repeat step 3 four more times, drawing lines that start at the edge of the circle and intersect with the previous lines at 60-degree angles. Each new line should be the same length as the previous line.

Step 5: Connect the Lines

Connect the ends of the lines to create a star shape. Start by drawing a line from the end of the first line you drew to the end of the third line. Then draw a line from the end of the third line to the end of the fifth line. Continue around the star until all the lines are connected.

Step 6: Erase the Circle

Erase the circle that you drew in Step 1. This will leave you with a clean and crisp star shape.

Step 7: Add Detail

If you want to add some extra detail to your star, you can draw small lines or dots around the points. You can also shade in the star or color it with markers or crayons to make it stand out.

Congratulations, you have successfully drawn a star!


  • If you want to create a more complex star, you can add additional lines and points following the same pattern.
  • Practice makes perfect! Don’t be discouraged if your first few stars don’t turn out exactly how you want them to. Keep practicing and experimenting with different techniques until you find a style that you love.
  • Experiment with different sizes and shapes of stars. You can draw large stars for posters or small stars for cards and crafts.
