DIY

- Make your own bamboo poinsettia

This cold and wet time of year, we like to bring the Christmas spirit into our homes. Christmas decorations are taken down from the attic en masse. You can also easily make your own Christmas decorations. A beautiful bamboo poinsettia is a real eye-catcher. Make a poinsettia with bamboo in a jiffy. Depending on the thickness of the bamboo, you can make it bigger or smaller. With our thin tonkin you can make a poinsettia of about 50cm, but we go for 66cm and use the beautiful decoration stick Java. Tip: if you buy 5 sticks, you can make 3 stars and have no bamboo left over!

Supplies

You will also need a drill, tape measure, pencil and scissors. For the finish, we recommend using a sandpaper and the Bamboo Booster oil.


Step 1. Measuring & cutting

To get 3 pieces of the same length, we work with 66 cm sticks. Then you can get exactly 3 sticks out of one decoration stick of 2 metres. So at the end you are left with 1 stick of 66 cm. for example, a nice photo frameof it.

Measure every 66 centimetres on your sticks. You can easily cut these with the Japanese saw.

Step 2. Make pattern

With a pencil you can mark where the holes should be and drill them with the bamboo drill. You can choose between two different patterns, as shown in the picture above. The diameter of the poles plays a role. With thicker poles, you can not make the weave pattern. The weave pattern gives a flatter star (seen from the side). The standard crossing pattern gives a star that can stand up better.

Step 3. Finishing the posts

Sand the holes briefly and use Bamboo Booster Oil with lint-free cloth to care for the posts. Allow the posts to dry for half an hour before proceeding with assembly.

Step 4. Mount

Now that the star has holes in the right places, it is time to assemble it. Thread the palm rope through two holes and tie a single knot. Then wrap the rope around the two poles a few times and tie a double knot. Repeat this for all the points of the star. Take care at the top point: you can leave a longer rope at this point. You can then use this to hang up the star. Next, it is important to wrap the star with twine a few times at the intersections. This will give your star more shape.

You're done already! As you can read, this DIY is super easy and quick to make.
