Once you start you'll find it hard to stop making these easy and festive natural straw stars also known as Swedish Stars. The completed stars are absolutely lovely for decorating windows, tucking into holiday cards, gracing your yuletide tree and gifts or having on hand as impromptu reciprocal gifts
This kit includes one instruction booklet with 18 pages, two 8-segment crown molds for holding straws in place while weaving, a time-saving 4-way straw splitter, and 50 natural and 50 colored straws (enough to make over 50 stars). Note that thread is not included. May we suggest our gold and silver metallic embroidery threads?
The booklet is photo illustrated and in German. An English translation is provided and includes a cute short story for children describing how Crafty Mouse invented straw stars.
Ages 6 and up.
