Natural brown paper Star Urchin holiday decoration handcrafted by Kissa Design, 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 Latte Star Urchin ornament, based on the traditional Polish porcupine ball, and handmade using a natural-colored paper the color of coffee and milk. This color looks nice with Vanilla (light natural), White and Bronze Star Urchins, and would be a great addition to a country-style Christmas tree or tablescape. Place any Star Urchin on a horizontal surface and tuck business cards, inspirational photos or other favorite bits of paper ephemera into the spines to create a unique display.

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.

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 here.
