Straw Moon and Star Toppers {Tutorial}

These felt crescent moon and star straw toppers are a great diy craft for little kids.  They can be made into different shapes and be used on pencils or suckers too.

Today’s tutorial was made by my youngest daughter and she felt (pun intended) that it was very easy.

If your felt crescent moon and star straw toppers get wet, just rinse under cold water.  To dry them,  press gently in a towel.
