How to make it

  1. Star-Spangled Wavers - Step 1

    Cut a pair of 6-inch stars from red, white, or blue felt.

  2. Cut a slightly smaller pair (ours were 4 inches across) from a different color of felt, and an even smaller pair (ours were 3 inches across) from the third color.

  3. Use tacky glue to affix the stars to each other. Glue together the 2 sets of stars, sandwiching a 3/8-inch dowel between them.

  4. Allow the glue to dry, then finish the baton by tying a length of red, white, and blue ribbon around the dowel.
