Using the construction paper trace the shape of a star. You'll need 13. Cut them.
punch two holes, one in each side. Do this to all the paper stars.
cut pieces of yarn that measure 4 inches. Tie two stars together. do this with 5 stars to form the "happy" word. Do the same with the rest.
You can tie them all together but you'll have to use and extra star between the words happy and birthday.
Use the black and white oil pastels to draw the letters. I added a small circle to the start and end of each letter.
I added the name of my friend and an extra star to write something to her. This was a gift so i folded the stars in a way that the one on top was the one with the note. I used a cd envelope that had a clear view. It was a nice gift.
