How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Download and print the template, and cut out the star shape. Trace it onto the museum board, and cut out the shape. Brush the star with craft glue, and sprinkle with glitter. Allow it to dry.

Step 2

If you want to enhance the color of the acorn caps, fill a container with stain, and add a splash of mineral spirits. Immerse the caps, then pour them into a colander (one you don’t use for cooking). Allow them to dry.

Step 3

Use the hot glue to attach three acorns together, open side down. Glue another, smaller cap, open side up, in the middle of the first three. Once the glue cools, glue the grouped acorns to the middle of the star. Brush craft glue onto the tips of the acorns, and sprinkle with silver glitter. Insert a small candle, such as a chime candle, into the open acorn. If necessary, use some melted candle wax to hold it in place.
