It's Memorial Day, and the perfect weekend for a patriot project to remind us of the fallen who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. This rustic barn wood sign is simple and very satisfying to paint for the porch or backyard area.
Here's what you'll need:
Raw Wood Star Sign
Acrylic Paints: Red, White, Blue
Round Foam Pouncer
Mask off stripes across the star. Apply masking tape to the back, sides, and top of the star in even spaces to create stripes.
For a rustic color, mix a few drops of blue paint to red paint and swirl with a cotton swab to create a rustic red.
Paint the stripes red, white and blue as seen in the photo.
Cut a star in the round foam pouncer. Use the foam shape to paint white stars on the blue area of the star.
Peel away masking tape and let dry.
Have a peaceful Memorial Day, as we pay respect and honor those who've given their lives for our freedom.
