10 FUN AND EASY 4TH OF JULY CRAFTS
Everyone pretty much knows that I love burlap. For my crafty 4th of July post, I wanted to make something with it, of course.
Here is my Patriotic Burlap Frame.
For this you will need:
Foam Paint Brushes
Stencils (make sure to have ones with smaller letters, I use Martha Stewart )
Burlap Frame 6×6 (you can either make this, or buy a set of them at Michaels)
Fabric Paint (red, white and blue)
Pack of Wooden Stars (also found at Michaels)
Hot Glue Gun
After you have your crafts together, start by painting your stars.
Get a piece of cardboard, or something to squirt your paint onto. I used all three colors to paint one of each. I got my 3 little wooden stars ( you can use more if you like), but I painted those first, so they would dry before I hot glues them to the burlap.
Then, I started on the frame.
Stenciling the word in with a little bit of tilt, gave it a little bit of a different look.
After completing the stenciling, I used my hot glue gun to place the stars on the frame.
And, Voila! Simple and Easy 4th of July Craft!
