Wood Stars Discs - Can be found at the craft store
Gold Paint - I used Elmer's paint markers
Jewelry bails - Can be found at the craft store
Washi Tape (a.k.a. Japanese Masking Tape)
Rayon Crochet Thread - Could be substituted for any string or jewelry chain
E6000 Glue - Can be substituted for an extra strength glue
2. Paint the entire star gold, let dry.
3. Add washi tape. You could also coat the tape with a glaze if you wanted. I tried it both ways and preferred it without the glaze. I liked the matte finish better.
4. Glue bail to back of star. You'll notice I glued the bail upside down. I did this so the bail would not show in the front. You can position the bail to your preference. You might prefer to glue it so it shows in the front.
*Craft Tip - If you're using old string that has kinks in it, you can iron them out. Same goes for ribbon. Just make sure you have your iron on the right setting. Synthetics can melt easily.
