Patriotic Candle Holders - constellations and stripes

A couple of us DSC girls have been involved with a site called Crafty Hangouts, where once a month we get the chance to share a craft demonstration via live video feed. This month’s theme was patriotic crafts, and we received some lovely paper crafting supplies to use in our projects. I was immediately drawn to some paper printed with constellations and thought it would make a fun take on “stars and stripes.” I even punched out all of the stars in the constellations so that the light from the candles shines through, creating a really neat effect. Check out all of the details over at Mrs. Greene! [how to make a constellations and stripes patriotic candle holder set]
