The Froebel star is a classic Christmas decoration in many cultures. They are also called the German Star, Advent star, Danish star, Nordic star, Polish star, Pennsylvanian star, Christmas star, and Swedish star. Essentially, a Froebel star is a three-dimensional star made out of four strips of paper. They can be used to decorate gifts too!
You will need four long strips of paper for each star measuring at least 1/2" wide up to 1" wide. They need to be at least 24" long. There is a great source on Etsy for the strips and they come in a beautiful variety of colors. I also will have a formula on how to make the strips by joining printer paper strips together which will be covered in class. Here is the link to the paper strips: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/FroebelMint
You will also need a sharp pair of scissors.
