TWIG STAR TUTORIAL

Make a rustic willow twig star decoration

A twig star is great craft project that can be a decoration in its own right or used as a base for a more intricate project.

The twig star in the picture is of a size to be used as a shop window display but this can be scaled up or down accordingly. So, for this design we used twenty 60cm (2ft) willow sticks of around 8mm - 10mm diameter. (We do sell a pack of willow sticks if you can't source any locally)

Willow sticks to make star decoration

The twigs are then grouped into five bunches of four sticks and wired together using florists stubbing wire.

Trim off the stubbing wire tails and fold back the twisted wire tail into a gap between the stick.

Next, just lay out the star paying attention to the 'weave' i.e. which length goes under and which goes over the other. I don't know why this step is so difficult but it always seems to take more thinking about than it should so don't worry if you need a couple of attempts.

Lay out the twigs to form the star shape

Wire together the ends at each of the star points.

If the star is to be used as a base for further decoration you have finished! If you want it to be a decoration then you can cover up the stubbing wire using some rustic twine.

Finish by wrapping the stubbing wire with rustic twine

The finished star can be hung on a wall, door or used as a shop window display if sized accordingly.

If you can't find any sticks we do have limited supplies which we grow in our own basket making willow plantation. To order the above materials or any other wreath making supplies please visit our online shop.
