Happy Independence Day

What happens when your BFF and her daughter come to your house before the 4th of July? Naturally you do some Americana crafting and a rousing rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" (complete with harmony and high notes.)

These "Holiday" kits were on clearance at JoAnn's but I thought they would look amazing with a fresh coat of chalk paint and a bit of jute twine and be able to be used all year round.

Starting off  we masked off stripes on the wood panel. We then used Waverly chalk paint in "Crimson" for the red stripes.  When dry we masked off again and did the stripes this time in"Plaster." We finally accented the sides with the Ocean blue.

When the whole project was painted we added the jute twine to the nails that are already on the project. 

Each one was different and we LOVED the way they turned out! Thanks Plaid Crafts for providing the brushes and the paint! 

 Supplies Used: Fab Lab-Holiday Star Kit, Waverly Chalk Paint in :Crimson, Plaster, and Ocean, Jute Twine, Chalk Paint brushes -Waverly
