Basically a super simple DIY. You need a heavy weight thread (I used quilting thread), some paper stars (mine are punched but you can just cut them out too) and Coffee Stirrer straws (I cut mine into thirds). I was inspired to make some garlands to decorate after making the strands for my pajaki. This was one of my favorite parts. I doubled my thread up so it would be extra sturdy, tie a double knot and alternate star, straw, star, straw. Then tie off at a star once you are at a length you like.
