Patriotic Stars DIY Wood Shapes
May 31, 2021
Hello friends! It's Jennifer here to share a home decor project I created using the Stars DIY Wood Shapes! It's been awhile since I've made a banner and thought this would be perfect for days like today as well as the 4th of July. The DIY Wood Shapes come in packs of three so you can use together one at a time.
I began by painting my Wood Shapes with chalk paint in red. I did not worry too much about coverage and allowed some of the wood to show through.
Once my paint was dry, I took a tea light candle and applied a generous amount of wax to the surface of the wood. If your desired end result is to have a more distressed look you will want to apply a large amount of wax.
I then applied off white chalk paint in sections, using a paint scraper to remove excess paint before drying. I did go back with a bit of sand paper to the surface for additional distressing.
Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I applied patterned paper to a portion of each star followed by adding embellishments.
For the center star, I painted the Star DIY Wood Frame and backed it with patterned paper. I then added some colorful bakers twine and adding a die cut before adhering with the Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.
I used a punch to place holes in each end of the stars to string ribbon through in order to hang my project!
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! Wishing you safe holiday!
