By fusing together atoms of the lighter ones. When the star’s nuclear fuel is exhausted the star explodes, scattering its outer layers back into space, adding to the gas clouds within which later stars form. Those later stars will contain more of the heavier elements, and will be able to create even more massive elements in their nuclear fusion reactions. Repetitive cycling within stars produces all of the elements of the Periodic Table, but ‘All of the atoms on the Earth except hydrogen and most of the helium are recycled material; they were not created on the Earth.
