Polish Star ornament, nature-inspired home decor for the holiday season and beyond, as seen adorning a Christmas tree in the December/January 2012 issue of Country Living Magazine (see last photo). Decorate your dwelling with this 4-INCH Vanilla Star Urchin ornament, based on the traditional Polish porcupine ball, and handmade using a light natural-colored paper. Display with Bright White and Bronze Star Urchins to create a modern neutral decorative accent, or add to a country-style Christmas tree or tablescape for a natural look with French Vanilla and Latte (shown center and right, fourth photo; not included in this listing). Very limited edition.

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 look delicate and celestial, take patience and a little while to make. Hang them in a window or from a branch as a modern decoration, or on a Christmas tree among your other special ornaments.

Each Star Urchin is packaged in a clear box for storage or gift giving and has a loop for hanging.

I recommend 3-inch and 4-inch Star Urchins for average-size Christmas trees. Please use the conversation feature ("convo" me) if you are interested in a different size, quantity or color that you don't see here. This color is only available in this size, however.
