Christmas star made of straw or newspaper tubes can be made with any liked pattern used in this circuit below. The process of creation will look like, as in this master class below.
I note that the creation of this work you will definitely need an assistant, as needed two more hands) If you want to work with straw, then it must be collected in the summer and well dried in a dark place. The best straw – rye. Gather straw when rye (wheat or barley) is only the beginning of ear, still wet. Before work dried straw soaked in warm water for about an hour.
So, to work, regardless of the material used – straws or tubes of newspaper or magazine pages, we need:
- straw or newspaper rolls – about 200 tons of pieces of the same length
- Two pairs of hands – two people)
- small clove
- a hammer
- strong thread
- stationery scissors or knife
Before you begin, it should be noted a plate using a ruler and pencil. Next, look at the photos of the work process, which do not need my comments. Here everything is clear.
