Introduction: Lego Star



Twinkle twinkle! This is another twofer Instructable that will show you how to make both a 5-pointed star and a 3-pointed star thingy. I just wish LEGO made glow in the dark 1x2s so I could really make this twinkle! 

Step 1:

5-point Star
You will need:
-210 1x2 bricks

for two colors: 105 of each color
for three colors: 70 of each color

3-point Star
You will need:
-180 1x2 bricks

for two colors: 90 of each color
for three colors: 60 of each color

Step 2:

Start to stack the bricks to form a strip as shown. The white brick (what will be the middle layer) should overhang the bottom brick, this makes connecting the model easier. 

Step 3:

After you build a strip with 7 (10 works better for the 3-pointed one) bricks in each row it's time to change directions. Turn the next white brick 90 degrees. Add the top layer of bricks for support. 

Step 4:

Continuing in the direction of the turned brick, build another strip that is 7 (or 10 for the 3-pointed one) bricks long on the top layer. 

Step 5:

Continue in a zig-zag pattern until you've made 5 peaks and 5 valleys (3 peaks and valleys for the 3-pointed). 

Step 6:

Curve the model to make the two ends meet. Hold the two ends close together in one end and add the final brick to secure. Done!
