Star shapes vary greatly. It's probably best to divide the shape into triangles (or other figures you can find the area of) and deal with those. For symmetric five-pointed stars, the area of a star can be approximated within .024% by taking the distance between two consecutive points, squaring it, and multiplying it by the fraction 13/16.
