I used PVA glue to stick a large flat back pearl in the centre and the largish clear gems on the rest of the sticks.
Then I got carried away and added smaller iridescent pearls from a strip of stickers on top of the clear gems, I have to say that the pictures don’t do justice to the sparkly effect.
I then decided to colour the back with a silver marker, so it looked more “finished off”.
I want to try this idea again, but using smaller mini craft sticks I bought recently and then decorate them identically on both sides. I think making a smaller size would fit better between the branches of a Christmas tree and being double sided it would look better from all angles and if the decoration twirled round.
