Hi, it’s Michelle From Chalkboardblue! With 4th of July on its way I wanted to share with you some Stars & Stripes!
Materials I used to make this:
1- Square wood plaque measuring 11 1/4 in. by 8 3/4 in. (I purchased mine at Michaels)
1- 1×6 pine board cut to 8 3/8 in. long. (any kind of board or scrap piece of board may also work)
1- 8 1/2 in wood star ( I have seen a star similar to mine at Hobby Lobby or Hobby Lobby online or
there is an etsy store that also sells wood stars, they are 6 inches, a little bit smaller, but here is the
link for the etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/listing/94116956/4-6-unfinished-wood-stars-mini-stars
1- roll of red washi tape with fine lines. (I purchased mine at Michaels)
(The blocks I have the striped board on are just extra 2×2 pine boards that I used for the photograph, but are cute to add some height)
I painted the star blue:
When the white paint was dry, I roughed up the boards a little for an antiqued look:
Started in the upper right hand corner and laid the tape across at an angle all the way across the board.
The word: Stripes measures 6.0x 2.215 in.
