I used the same principle as my flowered napkin rings, but instead used a star shape rather than flowers to make a motif that will fit with the table runner. Maybe now I just need to start the table runner....there's a lot of sewing to do....we'll see!
To make these sparklers, I used:
2 sheets of white felt (A4)
Needle and Thread
1 metre of silver and gold ribbon.
A star template scaled to match the ribbon width.
Step 1: I made the template on MS Word using Google shapes. This allowed me to make more than one and speed up the cutting out process. You need 8 star shapes.
Step 2: Sew beads or sequins into a design of your choice on 4 of the star pieces. This is the most time consuming part.
Step 3: Adjust the back. In this design the ribbon will be sandwiched between two star shapes. To do this the back piece needs to have 2 points trimmed. I glued these to the reverse of the back piece with tacky glue to add stability to the points.
