Stars made of spruce shavings.
The first stars of this type were made
when Christmas decorations like precious
nuts or apples were not affordable
for the average person. So a
virtue was made from necessity and
decorations were fashioned from the
materials at hand, which cost next to
nothing. Just like the glass blowers,
when they made fine globes of glass
from material they were using every
day, the carpenters took the freshly cut
shavings which were laying around the
workshop and lay them on the fir branches.
Later on they fashioned artful
stars from the shavings.
Today the manufacturer of these stars in Franconia planes these shavings from wood delivered from the Bavarian forest. Cut in strips, the shavings are hand formed into sachet-like shapes and glued together in stars.
