Wow- the 4th of July is coming up fast, isn't it?
Just in case I forgot, all the blogs and Pinterest serve to remind me. I actually have a bunch of patriotic crafts that are sitting either half-finished or completely undone.... from last year! This year, I vow to get them all done in time to enjoy them for a week or so!
Yesterday I sat down and pulled out my unfinished wooden star. I made this one for Christmas a few years ago:
That one was a plastic star from the dollar store. I found a wooden one for a few dollars at Michael's. I've seen tin ones, too. Point is, you can find them at lots of places.
Again, I used the tutorial from Ashley at Make It and Love It (found here). I bought some patriotic paper instead of fabric, and paired it with some red, white, and blue ribbon I have had FOREVER. Here's the final product:
I love how it turned out! I've got a few more patriotic crafts coming your way soon, so I hope you'll check back. Also- not to beg, but I'm getting close to the big 700 followers. If you're a lurker or a 1st-timer, I'd love to have you follow me! (There just MIGHT be a fun giveaway involved!)
Have a great weekend, all! My mom is coming in to town and I get to see my daughter's dance recital. She makes the perfect ballerina, don't you think?
