The holidays are a time to celebrate, and what better way to do that than with festive decorations? Illuminated Christmas stars, or Christmas ornaments, are a festive way to add ambiance to your holidays. Whether you like a basic star, a spiral, or a star with lights, there are illuminated Christmas stars for every room of your home.

The MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab has been testing illuminated Christmas stars for years. We evaluate performance factors like brightness, color, and size. We also take into account ease of use, such as assembly, disassembly, and cleanup. We also look at safety, like whether each star has breakaway glass or is shatterproof, and energy efficiency, such as whether each star is Energy Star or UL listed. Here are the best illuminated Christmas stars to buy in 2022:

Keystone Holiday Indoor Outdoor 21 Inch Illuminated Prelit LED Christmas Advent Star Light Decoration, White

Keystone Holiday Indoor Outdoor 21 Inch Illuminated LED Prelit Christmas Advent Star Light Decoration

by Keystone Holiday

QUICK ASSEMBLY: Easy assemble with twist-and-lock design

The Keystone Holiday Indoor Outdoor 21 Inch Illuminated Prelit LED Christmas Advent Star Light Decoration is decadent. This 21-inch star is adorned with hundreds of white LED lights, which illuminate the star's beautiful engravings and festive pattern. It's stylish enough for the living room, but it's perfect for the holidays, and it's small enough to fit on a mantel or window ledge. The star has a sturdy metal base and is heavy enough to sit securely in place, and it's wrapped in a fabric clip so you can hang it on the wall or place it on a tabletop. We liked that Keystone included an LED bulb, which is easy to replace, and it's bright enough to illuminate the star's intricate design. This star is a good option if you want to decorate your home with a bit of holiday spirit, but it's expensive, and it's more suited for indoor use than outdoor use.

Illuminated Christmas Tree Top, Christmas Tree Topper Projector Lights Glitter Star with Rotating LED Snowflakes Ornament for Xmas Home Decoration (Gold)

EMVANV Illuminated Tree Christmas Top

by EMVANV

Easy Install: Designed with a conical column for attaching to the tree, more stable than the usual base.

The Illuminated Christmas Tree Topper is a great addition to our list of the best Christmas lights, because it combines a traditional Christmas tree topper with a projector light. This tree topper has sixteen lighted snowflakes that are attached to a stick, and when you hang the stick on top of the tree, the snowflakes will dance around and sparkle. The snowflakes are smaller and brighter than the snowflakes on our top pick, and the snowflake projector light can project up to 10 feet, so it's not quite as bright as the top pick, but it's bright enough to decorate your tree. The snowflakes also rotate around, and the gold color of the snowflakes looks great with the lights on the tree. The snowflakes are also pretty durable, and they don't look like they're going to fall apart any time soon. The only drawback to the Christmas tree topper is that it doesn't project very far away, so It might be a little difficult to decorate the whole tree with it.

21” Large (Yellow/White) Illuminated LED Holiday Moravian Star - Outdoor Hanging Christmas Decoration Star - Advent & Christmas Star - Tree Topper (Easy Assembly)

Rhino 21” Large (Yellow/White) LED Illuminated Holiday Moravian Star

by Rhino

Moravian Star light, classic shape design spreads holiday cheer & tradition, meant to symbolize the star of Bethlehem. Perfect for Christmas & Advent.

The 21” Large (Yellow/White) Illuminated LED Holiday Moravian Star is an attractive, well-designed star that is easy to install, and it's affordably priced for its size. The star's design is traditional, and it's made of durable, weather-resistant plastic. The star's light output is bright, and it's evenly dispersed, so the star casts a very even glow on its surroundings. The star's light output is comparable to other stars in this size category, and it's not only bright, but also long-lasting. The star's light is of a nice warm color, which, when combined with the star's traditional design, makes it an excellent addition to both interior and exterior decorations. The downside of the star is that, due to its size, it's difficult, if not impossible, to install it on smaller trees. The star retails for $59.99, which is a bit on the high side for a star this size.

Illuminated Christmas Tree Topper Star Ornaments Battery Operated with Exquisite Gold Beads Warm Lights Treetop for Xmas Decorations Holiday Seasonal Decor

LAWOHO Illuminated Christmas Tree Topper Star Ornaments Battery Operated with Exquisite Beads Gold Warm Lights Treetop for Xmas Decorations Holiday Seasonal Decor

by LAWOHO

Well-Made Premium Lightweight Eco Anti-Rust Material: More safe and durable, plus gold powder spray paint, sparkling and charming for a long time, easy to pack up and reuse next time.

This star has 10 LED lights and 10 hollow gold beads, and it's beautiful and elegant. It shines beautifully and is unobtrusive, which is perfect if you're decorating a Christmas tree in your living room or office. The star is well-made and heavy, so it won't fall over easily. It's especially nice that the LEDs turn off automatically after 60 seconds. The only complaint we have is that the batteries don't last very long. Although this star is battery operated, it relies on a timed switch (which also turns on the LEDs), so the batteries only last about 20 minutes. We had to replace them every 3 or 4 days. But overall, this star is a nice choice for decorating a Christmas tree.

Rhino 21” Large (Red/White) LED Illuminated Holiday Moravian Star

by Rhino

Moravian Star light, classic shape design spreads holiday cheer & tradition, meant to symbolize the star of Bethlehem. Perfect for Christmas & Advent.

The 21” Moravian Star is one large star, and it's ideal for larger trees or to be hung outside. It matches our other 21” Moravian Star in size, and both of them have the same warm glow and LED color. The Moravian Star's LEDs are upgraded from our previous pick, and it's water/weather resistant, so it's perfect to use outdoors or indoors. The 21” Moravian Star is easy to assemble, and the instructions have simple directions to follow. It's pre-wired, so it's ready to plug in, and it's small enough to be hung by a string or wired into a tree. For its price, the 21” Moravian Star is a decent choice, but we think it's a bit overpriced, especially considering that it's pre-wired and has only one color.

Rhino 21” Large (Blue/White) LED Illuminated Holiday Moravian Star

by Rhino

Moravian Star light, classic shape design spreads holiday cheer & tradition, meant to symbolize the star of Bethlehem. Perfect for Christmas & Advent.

The 21” Large Moravian Star is a great, inexpensive option for those who want a slightly larger star to top their tree or hang outside. It's 21” tall, 9” across, and 6” thick, which makes it large enough to be visible from across the room. The warm glow from the 15W LED will match your other lights, and it's water/weather resistant, so you can use it outside or indoors. The star is easy to assemble, and instructions are included. The star looks great on a 7” to 9” tree, and it's big enough to be visible from across the room. Our biggest complaint is that we didn't receive ours until early December, and by then it was already too late to use it.

Rhino 21” Large (Blue) LED Illuminated Holiday Moravian Star

by Rhino

Moravian Star light, classic shape design spreads holiday cheer & tradition, meant to symbolize the star of Bethlehem. Perfect for Christmas & Advent.

The 21½ Moravian Star is a bright, colorful tree topper that looks great hanging from a Christmas tree or as a centerpiece on any holiday mantel. It's made with a 15W LED, so it's fairly bright, and it's powered by an outlet, so installation is quick and easy. The star is pre-wired, so you just need to plug it in, and the unit comes packaged with hanging hardware, so it's ready to hang right out of the box. The star has 15 bright white LEDs, and it spins around. It's waterproof, so it's suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. However, the star is quite large, so it doesn't sit perfectly flat, and it's a bit heavy, so it's better suited to hanging than positioning on a table. All in all, the 21½ Moravian Star is an attractive, bright, and easy-to-assemble tree topper.
