Constructing a Five-Point Star


A three minute demonstration of the geometric construction of a symmetrical five-point star.

This video supplements the in-depth instructions provided in my Super Star Kaleidoscope Project. Printed instructions for this process are also available.

We see how to divide a circle of any size into five equal sectors. This is the key to creating a traditional five point star. In the example, a large star is created on a 18x18" surface.
