Sparkly Star Garland

Add a little sparkle and wonder to your windows and doors this winter season. Trace stars (any shape you like really - a cookie cutter is a good tracing tool) on different papers. Card stock, glitter paper, and vellum - different textures look beautiful.

Cut out and paint the edges with sugar paste. Dip into glitter and let dry. String onto a strand of LED fairy lights and decorate your windows and mantels. Using battery operated LED strands allows you to decorate wreaths too. This festive and pretty garland will delight you and your little ones.
