The most popular post of last year’s 24 Days of a Baltic Christmas was Inga’s tutorial on day 16: PUZURIS – An enchanting little decoration. The Latvian puzuri can be considered the most widely known traditional Latvian Christmas tree decoration, and besides being popular on Lithuanian and Estonian Christmas trees, the geometric decorations are seeing newfound popularity across the world.
Today a friend of Mikus joins us with a puzuris tutorial: this one more appropriate for little hands as the traditional form utilizes straw - not only difficult to find but hard to come by in our neck of the woods. Check out this video from the Fallon Time Show on how to make your very own puzuri from pasta and twine!

A great big thanks to Fallon (and her mom!) for joining us on 24 Days of a Baltic Christmas. I hope she had fun learning about this centuries-old traditional ornament and is proud of the beautiful addition to your Christmas tree!
