Use pencil to make the guidelines; that way you can easily erase any excess later. Take your time and don’t rush; that can only make it look worse.
Erase the pentagon and the inside lines of the star if you want and outline the star.

Draw a line from the last point to somewhere between the first and second point.
How do I draw stars that look like the ones on the American Flag?
Create a 6-pointed star, turn your paper 45 degrees, and draw another one.
For the second method you’ll need a protractor. First, draw a circle, and a cross over it. From the top axis, measure 72 degrees with your protractor and draw a guideline from the center to that point in the circle.
As a graphic icon, the star is an image with five pointed tips. Drawing a perfect star involves creating straight lines in a symmetrical pattern. Below are two ways to draw this pointy representation of a star (plus an additional alternative method). Pick which one works best for you!
For starters, we need to draw a circle, drag the glass or the Tea Cup of putting its edges on the paper. Push very faintly on the pencil here so it’s easier to erase the lines later. Make your circle of the same size that you would want your star to be.
Consider this alternate method: extend each side of the pentagon outwards until they meet another extended side line. Continue until all lines are extended.

After you have completed the shape of your star, you can paint it using any color you want.
Start by drawing a large circle using a compass. Place a pencil into the pencil holder on your compass. Then, place the point in the center of a piece of paper. Turn the top of the compass while keeping the point still.
The pencil will draw a circle that is perfectly centered around the point.

To draw a star, start by drawing an upside-down “V” on the page, and don’t pick up your pencil from the paper. From there, draw a diagonal line upward and to the left, crossing your first line. Then, draw a straight horizontal line across the paper, ending at the right side. Finish your star by drawing a diagonal line downward and to the left to meet the starting point of the upside-down “V.” If you don’t want the middle lines to be visible, you can erase them and leave just a star outline.
Instead of going horizontally rightwards, draw a bit lower. Save a gap for another point.
Draw two triangles together, with a shared base, then erase the middle line.
Continue like the previous step. Draw towards somewhere between the second and third point, then between the third and forth point.
Give volume to the star. To give a 3D effect to our shape, you need to create it with the top edge of one of the parts, which will be grayed out. Verge drawing is very simple: connect the upper point of sharp corners to lower with blunt edges and you’ve got the shape of a star.
Color the star and you’re done! You’ve just drawn a perfect star!
Draw shadows on the faces of the star. A starfish has sharp clear edges. When coloring it in, make sure your hand follows same direction in straight strokes.
Draw an unfinished triangle. Leave a gap between the starting and ending points as follow.
If sketched correctly, the layout of the top points of the star must be equal in size and distance between the vertices. The easiest way to verify this is to rotate your sheet of paper where you draw a star and see how it looks on each side. If necessary, you can correct the figure before final adding strokes of pencil.
Use a ruler to create a triangle that starts from the top mark on the edge of the circle. Place your pencil on the top mark. Skip the first mark to the left and connect the top mark to the second mark to the left.
Draw a second mark straight across to the right, skipping the mark on the bottom. Finish by connecting that mark to the top mark. This will complete your first triangle.
Erase the guides and excess lines and you get your perfect star!
You could draw it in pencil with lines in the middle and then erase those lines.
Draw a five-pointed star and and turn your paper 45 degrees, and then draw a four-pointed star.
They can be any length! They just have to be the same length if you want a symmetrical star.
Draw a straight line at a downward angle back to your starting point. Your line will connect with the lower left corner of your drawing: “/”.
Keep doing so using the last guideline you drew as base. You should end up with five guidelines, including the first axis guide.

Draw an upside down “V.” Begin at the lower left side of your drawing, come up to a point and bring your pencil down and to the right. Do not lift your pencil from the paper until you are finished.
I want the star to be 12 in in diameter, how big do I make the pentagon?
Draw a straight line at an upward angle to the left. Cross your first line about 1/3 of the way up “” without lifting your pencil from the paper.
Draw a little square in the center, then four triangles on each side. You can make the square tilted a little, so the corners are pointing up and down, and draw the triangles on the tilted sides.
Draw a regular pentagon. Pentagons have five equal sides and an interior angle of 108 degrees for each side. You could draw one using a protractor.
Use a ruler, and look at the pentagon shape for reference. Try measuring one side of the pentagon shape, and then double it as needed (and then proceed to do the other sides).
You mainly just need the eraser if you want to draw guidelines and erase them afterwards (or if you make any mistakes and want to erase them).
How do I draw a 5 point star backwards without it being upside down?
Practice a lot. To help children remember how to draw a 5-point star, use this rhyme from Eric Carle: “Down, over, left and right, draw a star, oh so bright.” When drawing the 7 Pointed Star Type 1, you may feel like to draw a 5-pointed star instead.
Try to avoid the feeling by practicing more.

Finish the 7 pointed star by connecting it back to where you started.
Make a dot at the top of your circle with the pencil. Then, move the point of your compass until it is on top of the dot. Do not change the radius of the compass as you are moving it.
Try drawing a star without reading this tutorial and you might find it more difficult than you thought to draw the correct shape of the star. Before you draw a five-ended star, you should first draw a circle, which will encompass the star, and then divide it into equal parts. To do this, remember the rules of geometry. We’ll take a five-ended star like that on the sheriff’s uniform. You can choose another star, such as starfish. After drawing it, color it in with crayons or paints. In this lesson we will learn how to draw a five-ended star in # 2 pencil.
Now just paint or colour your perfect star with the color you prefer!
Draw straight lines connecting every other intersection between the guidelines you got and the circle. Then erase the inside lines.
Continue moving your compass point to the new marks and drawing marks until you have a total of 6 marks that are equidistant. Set your compass aside.
Erase the lines well if you don’t want them to be visible in the center of the star.
Even if I use a ruler, it does not work. How can I do better?
Draw two 4 pointed triangles on top of each other, one looking like a “+” and one looking like an “x,” or draw an octagon with triangles on each side.
Draw the five pointed star, like it was shown on number one, but one miniature one after another.
Create a second triangle starting with the mark at the base of your circle. Place your pencil on the bottom mark. Connect it with the second mark to the left by drawing a straight line. Draw a line straight across to your right, skipping the top mark.
Finish the second triangle by drawing an additional line back to the bottom mark on the edge of the circle.
Divide the circle into five equal parts. We split our range into five equal parts. To do this, we use the rule of geometry. First, measure the diameter of the circle line. After multiply diameter 6.28. The number that you get will be the distance between the peaks and the five-ended star. These points should be equidistant from each other. Now connect the dots as shown in the figure.
Do the steps with a mirror. If you see it regularly in the mirror, it will be flipped.
Draw a pentagon first, and then draw triangles out from the sides. After that, you can erase the pentagon lines.
How should I draw a 5-pointed star on my white canvas SHOES?
Draw a pentagon as a guide. You can easily draw a pentagon using a template ruler.
Move your point to one of the marks without changing the radius of the compass. Make another mark on the edge of the circle.
Do you want to learn to draw a star-shaped figure (not actually a star after the astronomical concept)? If you follow these steps, you’ll be drawing either a regular 5-pointed star or a 6-pointed or 7-pointed star in no time.
Draw a straight horizontal line across your drawing, ending at the right side. Cross the upside-down “V” shape about 1/3 of the way down: “-“. Again, do not lift your pencil.

Turn your compass to make a pencil mark that crosses your circle on the left. Repeat this on the right side of the point that you drew.
Draw a pentadecagon and then draw equilateral triangles on each of the sides.
Do the first two steps of the 5-point method. This type of star is similar to the 5-pointed star.
