    Supplies Needed

    Instructions

    1. Draw star shapes on a piece of wax paper using Elmer's 3D Washable Glitter Paint Pens™. Use a stencil of a star to trace around if you need help. Draw the lines wide and thick.
    2. Fill in the centers of the stars with paint. Use, red, blue, and silver paint for a patriotic look and feel.
    3. Paint tails coming off of the bottoms of the stars for a "shooting star" effect.
    4. Let the paint dry for 16 to 24 hours.
    5. Carefully remove the stars from the wax paper. Poke holes in the tops of the stars and thread pieces of string through the holes.
    6. Hang up the stars as patriotic decorations!
