- Mason jars or similar
- Homemade coffee play dough (recipe here)
- Star shaped cookie cutter
- Acrylic craft paint in red, white, and blue
- Twine or ribbon
- Candles (I got mine from Dollar Tree)
When painting the dough, it may turn a little soft, but no worries. Let it dry completely and it will be fine. You can even add a coat of clear spray sealer once it’s dry for extra protection.
Once the stars have been painted and are dry, grab your mason jars and twine. Wrap the twine (or ribbon if you’d prefer) around the top and thread it through the hole in the star. Tie a knot and it’s complete.
If you wanted, instead of candles, you could add a bouquet of wildflowers, candy or even use them as utensil holders like these.
