How to make a Matariki Star:
The things you need are cardboard, wool (2 colours), scissors and a pencil.
First cut a circle around your cardboard shape. Next cut 1.5cm slits that have an equal distance between them. Now get your first colour of wool and slide it into the first slit, leaving a tail on the other side. Begin making your way around the shape, passing through each slit several times until you have your desired look, leaving enough space to tie a loop.
Use your second colour of wool to weave a different side of the star from 1 to 6 etc. Above is my star which I like a lot and looks good with all the other stars on our display.
