4th of July Project

5 Materials

Here's my first 4th of July project
I've had a box of these wood sticks I found in a dumpster for over a year. I knew I could use them for something but it hadn't hit me yet.
I decided to glue the pieces into a star
I stained the star with a rust oleum walnut stain and secured the intersections of the wood with a small brad
covered it in a coat of poly
here's the final star, you could also do this with free paint stirrers
I purchase a couple of decorations at the dollar store, grand total $3
I made a star pattern and cut out some stars from left over Christmas ribbon. I also bought small wooden U S A letters at Walmart
Used the glue gun and played with it until I got it like I wanted. I found the little string of battery operated lights at the dollar store too.
Here it sits on my front porch
I think it's cute, basically made from things I already had a few dollar store accessories, left over stain and Christmas ribbon. This is something easy anyone can make and it doesn't take much time at all.
Happy 4th of July!
