The wooden star wands were originally found at Hobby Lobby for under $2. I did find some on amazon for a bit more. I also found them at Factory Direct Craft for under $2 but I have never dealt with this company before so I don’t know how they are about shipping, etc.

Paint the star wand and shells using the selected color of paint. Allow them to dry completely.

This should not take long. Acrylic paint dries pretty quickly.

Once the paint is dry, use school glue to attach the sequins to the wood star. Allow it to dry completely before proceeding.

*TIP* Put a bit of school glue on the star and use the paint brush to spread it out. Then place the sequins down before it dries.
