Rustic Star Makeover with Paper

This past week we have been having lots of fun with end of summer events. We have been having parties with families, swimming, and going to the Zoo. So I apologize for not posting for a little bit! 

I have been working on getting more decor for my little Logan's room who is almost 10 months old! I found this rustic star and wanted to make it more personalized for his room. 

I first cut out a pattern to cut the paper with. 

Next, I painted it. I used a light blue called Robin's Egg. I forgot to take a picture of this step. Sorry!

While that was drying I cut the paper out. This was the hardest part for me. I had a few different papers that I wanted to use but in putting it together I ended up liking using only two different papers. You can definitely use more then that! 

After the star is dry, mod podge the paper on. I put a light coat on the star first to glue the paper down. Let that fully dry. Then I put a light coat over the paper. When that is fully dry, put another light coat on. While it was drying I did have small bubbles. They all left when it dried completely. I have learned not to mess with the bubbles unless they are really big ones which doesn't happen to often. 

When the mod podge is fully dry you can dress it up with some ribbons or other embellishments. 

Now you have a fun new personalized look to the star
