It’s the day before 4th of July! What are you up to today? Do you get together with others or go watch fireworks? This is our first Fourth in this neighborhood, so we are going to get together with our neighbors and have hot dogs and hamburgers. We are even able to see the city fireworks from our neighbors front yard.
I created another little flag from some of the scrap pieces of wood I have laying around. This one was already painted red, so I figured that would work well for the stripes. Now, I made two mistakes on this craft. 1. I forgot to take pictures of all the parts of the process. It’s not too difficult, so I’m sure you will be able to figure it out. 2. I forgot to paint the star part of the flag white before I painted it blue. But I did come up with a solution.
Like I said, my wood was already red, so I taped off the part for the stars. If I had been thinking, I should have painted this square white before putting the stickers on, but, alas, I didn’t.
I found these stickers at Dollar Tree and stuck on 50 of them. That’s when I realized I should have painted it white, but I really didn’t want to have to redo the stars again. So I just spray painted navy blue over everything.
Once it was dry, I peeled the star stickers off the board. I have a white Sharpie paint pen, so I colored in each of the stars. It really didn’t take too long since the stars are small.
I didn’t get the pictures of the white stripes, but they are book pages with torn edges. I wanted 6 white stripes, 3 short ones and 3 long ones. For the long ones, I had to put 2 pieces together. I used Tacky Glue to attach them.
Really pretty easy! I know you got this!
Happy 4th of July!
