Stars and lace are the focus of this lighted angel holding a silver bauble by a silver thread. The positive image of the stencil is applied to the bottle as well as star stickers before painting the bottle blue. The negative stencil is applied along with a piece of lace to create the angel’s dress. You’ll find the free stencil included with the instructions. This project has no cords to fuss with and needs no electrical outlets. The lights are battery operated so you can place this decoration anywhere you please.
