Polish Star Christmas Ornament Tutorial 5

This is a tutorial on how to make a Christmas ornament out of paper called a Polish star. They look a lot like sea urchins.


I used 3.5 inch circles to make the segments and I used 10 segments per star.
These turned out remarkably well and actually look store bought when you are done with them.

When I Googled "Polish Star" I found a website where here is a lady selling these for $30 a piece!

I made these Polish stars 45 years ago when they were demonstrated in Bette Homes and Gardens.  I still have a few of them.  I used solid color foil wrapping paper, they had a colorful, shiny finish, ready for hanging on the Christmas tree. Thanks for the instructions, good to see the craft is still alive.

Thank you! My Grandma made those when I was a child, I never learned how to do them. I still have quite a few of them. Can't believe they'd be over 20 years old. With your tutorial maybe I'll give them a go this year ;)
By the way, we call those ornaments "jeżyki" (at least at my house we do :) ), it means hedgehogs. 
Thanks again, hope you have a great week. Love from Poland :)

@tweetnes I used my quilling glue, that dries nice and quick. I did use hot glue for the silver shiny ornament, it can be a little messy, but it works.

@KissHope These are fairly easy to make when you get the hang of it, I made a whole bunch of them for an ornament exchange and people like them
