  11. (TIP: place on a non-stick surface like freezer paper to dry.)
    Step 10 Example
  12. Pick a blue to use from the set, either Blue Lagoon or True Blue. I chose to use True Blue. (TIP: plan where the red, white and blue will be placed. Paint enough blue area so there are even amounts of red and white areas.)
    Step 11 Example
  13. Paint True Blue onto the top left fourth of the wreath using an 8 flat brush.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Paint second section with Red Hot using a small flat brush.

  16. Plan the placement of the white stars onto the blue before adhering.
    Step 15 Example
  17. Apply light amount of glue to the back of each star and press firmly onto wreath. Allow to dry.
    Step 16 Example
  18. Optional: use the metallic and glitter paints, included in the set, as an accent to your wreath.
    Step 17 Example
  19. (TIP: a great way to see how the accents look with the colors in your wreath is to paint out color swatches to see if you like the combinations!)
