4. Star Wreath
~Picture an analog clock face with the numbers 1-12 in a circle. You will be placing one of the 12 stars you cut out in the space of each number.
~Lay the Green Stars at 12, 3, 6, and 9.
~Lay the Red Stars at 1, 4, 7, and 10.
~Lay the Gold Stars at 2, 5, 8, and 11.
~I attached the 4 Green Stars first with two Glue Dots on the back. I only pressed down the right Glue Dot so I could overlap the stars.
~Then add two Glue Dots to one Star at a time and attach them so they slightly overlap the previous Star (And the Green Stars). Continue until all Stars are attached.
