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!

2. Paint all wood tags with pink, turquoise and purple paint. Refer to photo. Let dry.
3. Embellish wood tags with white and silver painted designs. Refer to photo. Let dry.
4. Cut a 5” length of pink 22 gauge wire. Starting with one small round shape, string one piece of wire through bottom hole and into top hole of a medium circle. Twist to secure and coil ends. Attach a wood tag in the same manner to bottom of medium circle. Repeat until you have 8 separate wood strands.
