Handmade Drinking Straw Christmas Ornaments
Lithuanians made an effort to find decorations that would highlight their Christmas tree and distinguish it from those of other nationalities.
Lithuanians chose to decorate their tree with “siaudinukai” straw ornaments which are the most beautiful ornamentations for the Christmas season.
The conversion from real straw to plastic drinking straws was a first-generation Lithuanian immigrant creation.
These are made in the traditional style with string holding all of the pieces together and no glue.
Ornaments are made by a local Lithuanian folk artist.
This design is star shaped and measures 6″ x 5″.
