Looks like you can get the stars here
Some sporting goods stores may have them also.
Most of my fall/winter running is done in the dark, so here is what I use to be seen:
*Red flashing LED armband
* yellow vest with reflective strips
I run with my dog and she has a blinking light clipped to her collar as well as reflective leg bands. If its cold enough that she needs a coat (she's a German Shorthaired Pointer, so her fur is not too thick) her coat has reflectives on it too.
I try to make sure any new articles of running gear I get have reflective parts on them.
Where did you buy the iron on reflective stars? Fabric store or would a Walmart have them?
I run most of my runs at night, so being visible is important to me. I wear a reflective construction vest. a white cap and both a head lamp and tail light. White in front read behind. Most cars move away about 150 meters down the road so if the one coming at me does not I have a warning that the driver is not paying attention.
A spin off benefit of my head light is it tells me a lot about my running form. It multiplies body movement where it hits the ground in front of me. So few inches of lateral movement is feet of movement where the light hits the ground
Good running and be careful out there.

I have to admit I'm probably thought of as too cautious when it's about running at "night". But gear doesn't really show it (more budget right now). I have a windbreaker with reflective bands, a red flashing light/whistle on my hydration pack and my iPod lit on my arm. I always run against traffic and stay under the lights. That being said, where I run is pretty calm by 7pm; if I see 5 cars on the road during my 5k it'll be a busy night.
Taking it one step at a time.
I bought 'iron on' reflective stars that I have ironed onto my hydration pack and baseball cap. They have attached really well. I also bought led reflective arm bands that flash red and my dad gave me a hi-vis vest. I was hit off my push bike by a car a couple of years ago so I'm probably a bit obsessive about being seen!
What do you wear to make sure you're seen at night?
