A Little Barn Star History

A Little Barn Star History

Barn Star History

The finer details about where and how this home decor got its start may be lost to time, but most historians agree on the basics. Essentially, the 300-year history of the metal barn star began with the Mennonite and Amish religious refugees in America (you may know them as the Pennsylvania Dutch). Though the trend quickly gained popularity and spread to other populations, it was the Amish who are widely credited with establishing the metallic stars as a decorating staple and for carrying on the tradition to this day. Surprisingly, from what we know of barn star history, the first versions were not the 3-D metallic stars you see now; more likely, the tradition started with a two-dimensional hex symbol that was painted right onto the side of the barn as a good-luck charm of sorts. Eventually, stars were fashioned in three-dimensional form out of roofing tiles and scrap metals, and made their way into every room of the house.

Metal Barn Star Past, Present

Metal Barn Star

Who says these old-time, hand-crafted can't be fashion-forward too? True, our vintage and rusty selections are a tip of the hat to barn star history, but many of the bold hues of our painted stars give that ol' standby a distinctly modern twist. Of course, a lot of our Amish-star-enthusiast friends are rather partial to the rugged look, but these lil' twinklers can charm even the most particular sort. A metal barn star in sleek copper, gold or silver has a 21-century polish that belies its old-country roots.
