Handcrafted Holiday ~ Twig and Lavender Stars
These babies are beautiful and and the lavender ones smell great. I plan on having them all over my house. The smaller twigs and lavender stems are being saved for this same project in miniature to put on the Christmas tree. Although the smaller twig stars I am planning on putting silver glitter so they shimmer in the tree lights.

  • Step 1

    First, put your lavender twigs in sets of three. Each 'arm' of the star will be made of three pieces of lavender (for the twigs, you usually only need one for each arm).

    Then start tying. Always tie the stem end to the flower end.

    When you get to the fourth arm, put it under the second. Like so:

    Then tie the fifth stem to the bottom of the first and you have a star!

    Trim the ends off so just the flowers and star are still there.

    With the twig stars, try to get some built in decorations like below for interest. But avoid ones that are wet. They tend to have bugs. Ants crawling from your project do not exactly say "Christmas cheer". ;)

    They are so beautiful and natural looking. Not to mention FREE!

    I also made another set for the Star of David. For this, you make two triangles out of the lavender stems (tying flower end to stem end, always) and then join the two together. It is always best if you weave the stems a little bit so the project lays flat.

    Beautiful!
