I am so proud!
I realized awhile back that I had a grand total of *one* 4th of July decoration. Woo Hoo. So of course I went to the Wood Connection and fixed that problem!
But then it was June 30th and I had a patriotic pile of unfinished wood...
So I've been a little busy ;)
Here are my flags-on-a-stick:
And my fireworks:
And my flag:
This is how everything was finished:
I painted, glued paper, sanded the heck out of the edges, inked, and covered the entire finished product with Mod Podge so it's relatively kid-proof.
And here is my USA:
I finished this one a little different:
I still painted, sanded, inked, etc... But I tore and inked strips of paper and glued them on separately for some texture. It was a bit more complicated and took some time, but I think it looks awesome!
I used the Authentique "Pride" paper line for everything so it coordinates. I don't have the largest decorate-able area, so it looks nicer when all my smashed together decor matches!
Plus I love that paper.
Happy July 4th!
