I have to be totally honest. I don't really decorate for July 4th but I wanted something for the porch. After a little thought and some staring at my pile of pallet wood, I came up with an idea!
I grabbed a leftover piece of wood and gave it a good sanding. Then I started taping-off the various areas.
I started with the field of blue. After that was dry, I taped the stripes. When everything was painted and dry, I did a little distressing with some 220 grit sandpaper.
The wooden stars were in my stash of goodies and got two coats of antique gold acrylic paint. When they dried, they were glued-on to the field of blue with E6000. A piece of jute was stapled to the back for an hanger and this project was just about done.
The entire sign was given two coats of matte finish Krylon. Then it was declared done!
It's hanging on my little wagon on the front porch right now. Like I said, I don't decorate for July 4th, but, maybe this will be the start. You never know!
The entire project didn't cost me a cent, since I had everything I needed to make it.
I'm so glad you stopped by the Cottage, have a wonderful week!
