The chinese make these stars out of strips of paper. They make 365 of them, put them in a pretty jar and give them away as gifts to people and wish them a year of good wishes. could do this with her stars. Or just store them in a jar in her sweet room!
Sparklers would be a cool example of life for this project. Again, an awesome mood is set by it's own light. And everything els could be edited to be dimmer to draw out the rich color and light of the sparkler.
