How to Draw a Star (Multiple Points!)
This tutorial will show you how to make a five- or seven-pointed star using common household items such as a ruler, graphite pencil, and compasses, as well as a fun bonus of how to draw a five-pointed star in a casual manner.
What You Will Need
To complete this project, you’ll need the following items: a graphite pencil (I recommend using HB or H type, and make sure it’s sharp), a pair of compasses, a protractor, a ruler, and an ink pen (optional).
I like to start by drawing a small circle with an arbitrary radius with a graphite pencil; it’s important to leave enough space around this circle in case you want to erase the subsidiary lines later.
I like to draw a straight line upwards from the circumference’s center with a ruler.
I create a 120u00b0 angle sector with a protractor, using the central point and the vertical line as measurement references. To draw a three-pointed star, we should create three equal sectors; 360 divided by 3 equals 120.
The apexes of our star, where they meet the larger circumference, are referred to as the Solar System.

Why do we draw stars with 5 points?
A star is a massive spherical ball of plasma, and all of the stars we can see (apart from our Sun) are so far away that they appear to us as perfect little dots. The reason we draw stars as pointy objects is that our eyes perceive them as such.
