Raffia Star Tutorial

I have a shelf in my living room and that desperately needed some holiday decor. I have been working on it for most of December and finally have it the way I like.

 I added a cute homemade Raffia star to my shelf for a little bit of height and whimsy. I absolutely love how it turned out, and it only took me a little over an hour!

 Here's the tutorial if you'd like to make one for yourself!

Step 1: Glue popsicle sticks together into five small angled corners.

Step 2: Glue them into a star shape. I adjusted mine after this picture. You can do the same.

Step 3: Wrap your entire star with raffia.

Once you've wrapped the entire star you're done! You can always wrap it differently then I did, this is just all the raffia I had on hand and so that's how I wrapped it. Add it to your favorite decor and enjoy it all season long!
