Brilliant wooden braiding stars by Prym allow you to produce braided cords that are perfect for hair accessories, glasses cords, book marks, jewellery and many other craft projects.
Available in two sizes for different thickness of cord, thread or wool. The maxi size will take cord/thread up to in size and the standard will take cord/thread up to in size.
Simply choose 7 threads of the same or different colours. Hold them together and knot at one end. Place the knot though the central hole and place each cord into one of the straight slots around the star.
With the empty slot facing you, count three threads anti-clockwise and move this thread into the empty slot. Turn the star again so the empty slot is facing you and repeat with the third thread anti-clockwise. Repeat to create beautiful knotted cords, revealed though the central hole.
Lots of different patterns can be made using different knotting patterns - endless uses, a relaxing craft that's suitable for children and adults.
