Straw Ornaments - Popular European Craft

Straw Angel
 I can't even imagine weaving or creating anything with straw.  It is a dying art still practiced in Europe. We bought these ornaments in Door County WI at Al Johnson's Swedish restaurant....

....where the goats roam the roof and eat the grass!!
6 pointed star with gold thread.

Reindeer with really long antlers!
3 dimensional in all directions.  Not flat.
And last but not least my favorite -  a snowflake or 8 pointed star.

 Please visit my eBay store for lots of other ornaments and lots of other great holiday gifts many under $10.00

Those ornaments are really neat! They look very hard to make. I really like all of them. Definitely something I've never seen before.
