Hello all and welcome to a new week!! We are working on all things having to do with The Fourth of July this week. For our Fourth of July celebrations, we invite all my husband's family over for water fun, a BBQ and fireworks. We have a very large grassy area that works for accommadating large number so it is perfect. I have table decorations planned but I thought this year would be fun to spruce up our yard with decorations! So for this week, I am doing star decorations for the flower beds.
1) Lay out the stars and paint the desired color. Let dry.
3) Paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the dried, painted star. Place the cutout star shape on the painted star and smooth out any wrinkles that appear. Allow to dry. Paint a top layer of Mod Podge onto the paper. Let dry.
4) Drill hole into bottom of the star that is wide enough for the dowel to fit. Cut dowel to desired length. Place a small amount of wood glue into the drilled hole. Insert dowel and allow to dry. (Or you can do what I did and skip this step altogether and just tape the dowels on!! I ran out of time!)
