Star Urchins are my modern interpretation of a decorative Polish folk art ornament, originally made from tissue paper, that dates back beyond a hundred years. To me, they look like stars or sea urchins, so I call them Star Urchins, but their spiky form has been likened to dahlias and fireworks, too. I make each Star Urchin completely by hand, and each one has 80 hand-formed points. My family has been making them for over half a century and my many years of practice produces a very neat ornament. They are delicate and celestial, take patience and a little while to make. Great to use for decoration anywhere you'd like an interesting conversation piece, or hang them on a Christmas tree with other special Christmas ornaments!
Each Star Urchin comes in a protective clear plastic box (like that pictured) that can also double as a gift box, and has a loop for hanging.
I recommend 3-inch, 4-inch and 5-inch Star Urchins for average-size Christmas trees. Please contact ("convo") me if you are interested in a different size, quantity or color that you don't see here.
