Willow star and ball kit. Everything you need to weave a fab willow star and ball. The ball would look great as a garden ornament or place the lights provided in the kit inside and have a year round light feature. The star provides a pop of light on dark winter nights. We are generous with the willow so there is actually enough willow to make more than two items. Most people love working with willow once they have had a go. You need a little patience as you do have to soak the willow before starting, but good things come to those who wait! The willow ball you will make can be placed in the garden as an attractive feature or find a home inside year round as a festive decoration. The kit includes two sets of LED fairy lights on thin wire which can be wrapped around the star or placed within the ball. Our willow kits are an ideal way to get a feel for willow and weaving, as they are simple designs aimed at beginners. Once you have tried weaving willow, you will probably develop a new appreciation for the work that goes into making baskets and other products. The willow in in our kits is very high quality and can be used to make heirloom items. If kept in dry conditions, it will last a lifetime or more. We use British willow in all our willow kits; our willow is grown in Somerset. We try our best to have as many British products as possible in our kits. The willow is 6 feet long and is sent out dry and unsoaked. Soaking the willow is pretty straight forward, our instructions will guide you as to what to do.

Craftkits was born from a love of making things and sharing that creative process. Based on the West Coast of Scotland. I aim to create a craft course experience at home. Making something in the relaxed atmosphere of your own home can be a great way to bring some mindfulness into your life. I do my best to source as many materials from the UK as possible and I am also working towards making the materials and packaging more eco friendly. Lorna
