If you are on Facebook, you might have seen a tutorial by a young lady named Viera Kryvoshyya. She was making Polish Star Christmas Tree ornaments. I was intrigued by this intricate craft and I wanted to see if I could make a Polish Star.
Here are some of the papers I chose for my stars. You can mix it up. I made one star with half green chevrons and half red chevrons.
A close up view of my supplies. I also found that you could use anything you have on hand to hold the layers in place such as a small bead or button instead of the sequins. And you want to use as small a drop of glue as you can when making the points. I had to get a package of wipes to have on hand to wipe off my fingers and my pencil. I like Aleene's tacky glue because it dries quickly and holds everything secure. Which can be a problem because several times my pencil stuck to the points!! I found that I needed to wipe off my pencil after making several points to remove excess glue.
Here is my finished product....I really had fun replicating Viera's stars. I found that my second star looks better as I was able to perfect my points. It took me about an hour start to finish to complete this project and I will admit it is a project for someone who is a crafter...it is not an easy project.
So my Christmas Tree will be sporting some Polish Stars this year. And my sister has already asked me to make her one so I see lots of stars in my future.
