I can't believe how quickly July 4th is coming! I feel like yesterday I was decorating for Christmas and now we are half way through the year again! Boy time flies! But even so, my kids LOVE the 4th of July almost as much as they love Christmas, so we always have a lot of fun decorating and creating Patriotic crafts this time of year!
Today I am going to show you a really fun and simple idea: 4th of July Wood Coasters
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint 8oz - Legacy
- Americana Decou-Page (Glue-Sealer-Finish) 8oz - Americana Decou-Page Outdoor
- Foam brush
- Vinyl, star stickers or pencil
- Wood slice coasters
- Water basin
First you will want to create your star shape. I cut a star shaped out of vinyl using my Silhouette, but you could also cut one out by hand with scissors or an exacto knife, use star stickers purchased at a store, or simply use a pencil to draw a star shape onto your wood. Whichever you prefer!
Because I used vinyl as a stencil, I simply placed my star shaped vinyl in the middle of my wood coaster and then used my foam brush to paint 1-2 coats of Americana Chalky Paint in Legacy over it.
