How to draw a horizontal line between two circles with css?

How to draw a horizontal line in between 2 circles in css?

It has to be in the middle of them just as shown in the screenshot.

Example here:

enter image description here

I have drawn the 2 circles, but don't know how to connect them.



#status-buttons a {
color: black;
display: inline-block;
font-size: 17px;
font-weight: normal;
margin-right: 0;
text-align: center;
text-transform: uppercase;
min-width: 150px;
text-decoration: none;
}
#status-buttons a:hover {
text-decoration: none;
}
#status-buttons a.active span {
color: white;
background: #ACCF5B;
box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.792157) 3px 3px 3px 0;
}
#status-buttons span {
color: white;
background: #22bacb;
display: block;
height: 45px;
margin: 0 auto 10px;
padding-top: 20px;
width: 60px;
border-radius: 50%;
box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.792157) 3px 3px 3px 0;
}

<div id="status-buttons" class="text-center">
<a href="#/form/regalo" class="active"><span>1</span> Step 1</a>
<a href="#/form/tusdatos"><span>2</span> Step 2</a>
</div>

Answer

You can use a pseudo-element to insert an absolutely-positioned border:

#status-buttons {
  position: relative;          /* 1 */
  display: inline-block;       /* 2 */
}
#status-buttons::after {       /* 3 */
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  width: 50%;
  z-index: -1;                 /* 4 */
  top: 35%;
  left: 25%;
  border: 3px solid #ACCF5B;
}
#status-buttons a {
  color: black;
  display: inline-block;
  font-size: 17px;
  font-weight: normal;
  margin-right: 0;
  text-align: center;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  min-width: 150px;
  text-decoration: none;
}
#status-buttons a:hover {
  text-decoration: none;
}
#status-buttons a.active span {
  color: white;
  background: #ACCF5B;
  box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.792157) 3px 3px 3px 0;
}
#status-buttons span {
  color: white;
  background: #22bacb;
  display: block;
  height: 45px;
  margin: 0 auto 10px;
  padding-top: 20px;
  width: 60px;
  border-radius: 50%;
  box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.792157) 3px 3px 3px 0;
}
<div id="status-buttons" class="text-center">
  <a href="#/form/regalo" class="active"><span>1</span> Step 1</a>
  <a href="#/form/tusdatos"><span>2</span> Step 2</a>
</div>

Notes:

  1. Establish nearest positioned ancestor for absolute positioning.
  2. Make container consume only the width necessary.
  3. Insert pseudo element
  4. Ensure that any horizontal line overlap doesn't appear above circles
