Straw Stars Kit; bring a bit of nature inside

Handmade equipment to make great stars.


This is a challenging eco-friendly activity that is not suitable for the impatient! But, once you get the hang of it, it is engrossing and will give you the satisfaction of accomplishing something hard and beautiful.

You will create geometric patterns using straws, making lovely Christmas stars, bringing a bit of nature inside to complement your Christmas decorations.

This course will give you the skills with which you can create more and more intricate stars.

It will keep you (or someone else) busy for hours and inspire to make more of your own design.

It makes a perfect present for a crafty person who's looking to add a new skill to to their repertoire.

Recycled and natural materials are used throughout, including in the packaging! Everything is made by hand, which means no two packages will look exactly the same.

If you want me to send it directly to someone else, I'll wrap it up in Christmas paper, attach a gift tag with your short message for free.

Who will take up the challenge or to whom will you throw the gauntlet?
