Christmas star on display 


1Measure and cut dowel

Cut the dowel into five 150mm lengths with a hand saw.

2Assemble and secure dowel

Position the dowel pieces to form a five-point star. Join the points with twine, knotting securely.

3Wrap the raffia around the star

Starting at one point, begin wrapping the star thickly in the raffia, always working in the same direction for consistency. To finish, tuck the raffia under the wrapping at the back of the star and trim the excess.

4Now you’ve got the decorations, start planning the gifts!

Take a look at our Christmas gift guide, you’re sure to find a gift to suit anyone, on any budget.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
