Red and White peppermint stripe Christmas holiday star ornament, a modern spiky paper ball Polish jeżyk decoration handcrafted by Kissa Design. Decorate your dwelling this holiday season with a 4 INCH Peppermint Candy Star Urchin Christmas ornament, based on the traditional Polish craft, and handmade using a vivid metallic red and white candy cane stripe paper, reminiscent of that special holiday treat. Gather a few in a bowl to add a contemporary twist to traditional holiday decorating; they're great to give as gifts, too, to teachers, besties, hosts or hostesses and more. LAST ONE available in this size!

Star Urchins are my modern interpretation of a Polish folk art decoration, a style of ornament making 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 of mine 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 is packaged in a clear box for storage or gift giving and has a loop for hanging. This listing is for one 4-inch ornament. I recommend 3-inch and 4-inch Star Urchins for average-size Christmas trees. Please contact me if you are interested in a different size, quantity or color that you don't see listed here.
