I am demonstrating this star using seed beads. You can use bugle beads instead of seed beads for the sides of the points like the white one below. Also try using different color for the core like the blue-and-white star below. I used 3mm beads in bicone shape for the blue-and-white star and used only 2 beads for each side of the point instead of 3.
Core: 15 beads
Points: 65 beads
Fishing Line: 40 cm (if you use size 11 seed beads)
