Step 1: Draw a Circle
Use a compass and draw a circle with a 4 inch radius. Then use the compass to mark 6 lines in the circle. start at any point on the circle and continuing until you have 6 lines.
Step 2: Draw a Line.
Draw a line between the bottom two lines skipping one line in between.
Step 3: Draw Two More
Draw a line from side of the line to the top little line. Then do the same thing on the other side.
Step 4: Finish Your Star.
Do the same thing, but make it upside down now you are done.
Step 5: A Star Within
If you like you can draw another star the same way inside the first one. And you can keep doing it until it gets too small to do anymore.
Step 6: Have Fun With It
Now from that point you can connect points in the circle to make it more complex.
