step by step

After gathering your materials…

 

 

Step 1: This is my favorite step! Paint dowel with glitter paint -you’re going to want 2-3 coats. If you’re in a rush -metallic paint only takes one coat. But you know that glitter is worth it.

 

 

Step 2: Glue a small ball of fluff around the tip of the dowel and hold till dried. This little ball is what holds the dowel in the star.

 

 

Step 3: To make the pocket of the star -snip the top tip off then use your needle and thread to start sewing on sequins to the pocket and back of the star.

 

 

Step 4: Stack the three stars together. Start stitching on the base of the star just over to the left of where the dowel will sit. I backstitched but a tight running stitch will work as well.

 

 

Step 5: Continue stitching all around, clockwise until you get to the 5th point of the star. Stuff a little of the fluff in each of the points -I use the point of my scissors to help guide the fluff. And no need to over fluff!. Finally stick the dowel in and stitch closed.

 

 

Step 6: Roll or fold the You’re A Star card (link to pdf) and insert in the pocket. A little bag of glitter, love note or a gift card would be a perfect match as well. You’re done and ready for magic!
