To begin, apply red, white, and blue acrylic paint to a wood star using a dry paintbrush. The paint will stick to the raised surfaces of the star, leaving some wood visible for a rustic finish. Let dry.

Next, spell out a patriotic sentiment with wood tile letters. Then, secure the tiles to the star with Thin 3D Foam Squares.

Stick 3D Foam Stars onto the wood star. The various sizes of solid and nested stars in this set makes creating stellar dimensional designs quick and easy.

After the stars are placed onto the wood, peel away the top liner. Then, press a holographic silver Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet onto the stars and gently rub to transfer the foil. Finally, peel away the foil sheet to reveal the sparkly designs.

The summer months cover patriotic holidays in the US such as Memorial Day, Flag Day and 4th of July. These occasions are often celebratory in nature, and I enjoy gathering with friends and family, decorating, sharing a meal, and all the entertainment that goes with it. I know I will be able to display this rustic décor piece several times a year.

Thanks for stopping by today!
