How to Make

  1. Cut a piece of acetate sheet (like the ones you find in toy packaging) to about A5 size. Tape the sheet over a cross and circle template provided and used a fine tipped permanent pen to trace around the outline.
  2. Use a small paint brush to paint PVA glue around part of the outline of the cross. Sprinkle red stone crystals over the wet glue and shake off the excess. Continue gluing around the outline, sprinkling crystals as you go, while the glue is wet.
  3. Cover the outline of the circle with green stone crystals as before. Leave the outlines to dry and then fill in the centre of the cross shape with a mixture of yellow and orange stone crystals held on with more PVA glue.
  4. Fill in the whole background of the design with blue stone crystals and leave to dry for an hour. Use a pair of scissors to cut around the circle, leaving a tab at the top. Make a hole in the tab and thread satin ribbon through this for hanging.

Top Tip

If you can't find any acetate simply glue the crystals onto plain white paper; the light will still show through.
