  • Striping brush
  • Copper chisel-tip paint marker
  • Metal star embellishment
  • Acrylic (clear plastic) crown embellishment
  • Copper alcohol ink and felt applicator
  • White card stock
  • Pencil
  • Clear Gel Tacky Glue
  • Original Tacky Glue
  • Glass pebble
  • Copper self-adhesive metal tape
