When you see the “helping hand” symbol on a project, it means you may need adult supervision to do the project. Always use care when using tools or a heat source. Be careful and safe!


1. Drill holes into the wood circle at two opposite points.
2. Paint the circle white. Let dry. Using a black marker write the name of one of your party guests.
3. Cut a 2” length of wire for the holder. Curve one end in a tight circle. Thread the straight end of the wire through the circle. Curve the other end.
4. Cut a 6” length of black craft lace. Thread lacing through the bottom hole in the circle and knot to secure. Slide three pony beads on the lace and knot the end to secure. Trim excess lacing.
5. Punch a hole in the top edge of a plastic drinking cup. Thread the wire/cup marker through the hole.

Optional: Repeat steps 1 through 5 using a variety of wood shapes. Paint them assorted colors and attach different colors of pony beads so each party guest has a different cup marker.
