Star-Spangled Wavers


•    Scissors

•    Pieces of red, white, and blue felt

•    Red, white, and blue ribbons (available at local craft stores)

•    Tacky glue

•    3/8-inch dowel


  1. Cut a pair of 6-inch stars from red, white, or blue felt.
  2. Cut a slightly smaller pair (ours were 4 inches across) from a different color of felt, and an even smaller pair (ours were 3 inches across) from the third color.
  3. Use tacky glue to affix the stars to each other. Glue together the 2 sets of stars, sandwiching a 3/8-inch dowel between them. 
  4. Allow the glue to dry, then finish the baton by tying a length of red, white, and blue ribbon around the dowel.
