The work is performed in stages. First, you need to make 2 main parts of the product: a star and a stick. The rest of the time will be allotted to decorating the product. The first step is the creation of blanks for the main elements of the product. For this, you will need 1 large sheet of paper, a ruler and a well-sharpened pencil. Draw a medium sized star with 5 ends and another smaller one. You can use plain paper, but it’s better to make cardboard blanks. Take scissors and carefully cut out paper stars. Attach the finished form to the sheet of felt, and circle all the outlines with a dry soap. For a large star, green felt is suitable, and for a small star - bright yellow. It is necessary to get 2 blanks for each star.
