Well this day has come, I have made a few of these in preparation for my daughter's Ballerina Party (read about some other projects for this party here). Aren't they just so cute ???
Here is what you will need:
Mini wooden candlesticks (about 3")
76mm Wooden circles (From Wood Craft Shapes on ebay)
Paper and pencil
Unfortunately, I was not able to source the mini wooden candlesticks from the UK, I just couldn't find them anywhere. Instead I had one of my friends bring them back from her holiday in the US... They're from Hobby Lobby.
But please, if you know where to find them in the UK, share in the comment section and I'll update the post.
Because I am a bit of a perfectionist, I had to find a way to position the candlesticks bang in the middle of the wooden circles. Here is how I did it.
Cutout the two templates.
Fold in half and then in half again so as to get quarters.
Position the small shape on the bigger one, matching the corners, and draw around it.
Cutout the small shape.
Unfold and use as a template to draw a small circle shape on the wooden circles.
Hold in place for a few seconds.
Let dry as per manufacturer's instructions
Embelish as you want !!
