You can decorate with glitter by spreading a thin coat of white craft glue in the area you’d like the glitter. Sprinkle the glitter over the glue and tap off any excess. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly and apply another thin layer of glue to seal on the glitter. Cut out the star template and cut out 2 stars from the felt in a colour of your choice.

Use the hot glue to glue the two stars together without gluing the bottom rectangle together.

Slip the star over the wand and glue the sides of the rectangle to close the topper onto the twig.

Add a drop of hot glue to the bottom of your wand and glue the yarn/string. Wind the string around the twig to cover the bottom of the twig. Once you are happy with the coverage, cut your string, add a drop of hot glue and carefully glue the end of the yarn to the twig.
