Step 5.

Prepare your materials: cut a piece of aluminum foil and lay the shiny side face down as your work surface.  In a paper cup, mix an equal amount of craft glue with water to make a glue solution. Lay your painted craft stick shape face down on the foil. Cut small pieces of blue and silver tissue paper. Using a foam brush, apply the glue solution to a piece of tissue paper.

Once dry, string blue and silver Pony Beads onto the elastic cord.

Leave a little room at the top of the cord and tie a loop for hanging. Tip: Include one bead inside the loop shape. This will prevent all the beads from falling off when not yet hung.
