  1. Cover star in two coats of paint; let dry completely. (Tip: Use a drying pin-board. This will prevent the color from pooling and drying in an uneven fashion.)

  2. Add a little water to white craft glue to thin it slightly, then coat the surface of star with glue mixture. Working in sections, use a spoon to sprinkle glitter generously over the glue. Gently shake off excess. Let dry overnight.
