  • 12" length of 1/4" wide wood dowel
  • wooden candle cup with 1/4" wide hole

Instructions

  1. Trace and transfer the patterns: Trace the patterns onto tracing paper, then cut out. Place each piece on the designated felt and use a disappearing pen to trace the pattern onto the felt. Cut out the felt as follows: pink: two large stars; purple: two medium stars, two hearts; magenta: two small stars.
  2. Glue a heart centered on a magenta star, then glue the magenta star onto a purple star. Glue a purple star centered on a pink star. Repeat for a second set. Glue crystal glitter on the pink and magenta stars; let dry.
  3. Insert one end of the dowel into the candle cup and glue to secure. Paint the dowel and candle cup lavender; let dry.
  4. Place the pink star backs together and insert the dowel top through the bottom between them and glue to secure. Place a book or weight on top until the glue dries.
  5. Cut each ribbon in half. Hold one piece of each ribbon together and make a shoestring bow with 1 1/2" loops and 10" tails. Knot the end of each tail. Repeat with the remaining ribbons for another bow. Glue one bow to the star bottom on each side.
