Description

Moravian stars were traditionally made in Moravian boarding schools in the nineteenth century during the Advent season.  Because of this historians believe the making of stars may have been a math lesson where students learned to draw and make geometrical shapes from paper.  One of the shapes was a pyramid.  By gluing the pyramids together a multi-pointed star was created.

Our Paper Moravian Star is created by a Winston-Salem artisan using that early method.  He meticulously cuts, folds, and glues each pyramid or cone to form a perfect Moravian star.  The 4.5″ diameter star may be hung on a tree or from an ornament stand.  Each star will arrive in a kraft paper box.
