Star Light, Star Bright

What You’ll Need: glass votives, red and blue tissue paper, scissors, Mod Podge, foam brush

Ages: 4 and up

Start by layering the tissue paper and cutting out multiple star shapes. Use the foam brush to cover the outside of a votive with Mod Podge. Add the stars to the votive, overlapping a few if you like. Once the stars are in place, coat the votive with another layer of Mod Podge. Repeats these steps with the other votives and stars. Let them dry and then add a small candle to each. Light the votives and say ‘Happy Birthday, USA!’
