Star & Stripes Plaque

Happy Monday All!!

I hope you had a FABULOUS weekend!! Today I am continuing on with my 4th of July decor. I have a fun plaque for the upcoming holiday to show you how to make!

Here is the

It is very simple, but looks so pretty to put up in the house!

Here is what you will need to make it:

-Wood Board {11" tall x 11 1/2 wide x 1"thick}
-Wood Star {Found at Michael's}
-Small thing of Red Yarn
-White and Blue Paint
-Hot Glue

First, I painted the board white and the star blue. I did 3 coats of white and blue on each.

After they dried I measured out the board and figured out where I wanted the stripes to be. 
Next, I took the yarn and started winding it around the board. I went over the same area twice with the yarn to make sure it was fully covered. I did that 3 times in each section. I chose to do yarn instead of paint to give it more texture.

When I was done with one section I cut the yarn so it was on the back. Then I put a big dab of hot glue to hold it in place.

Here is what it looks like at this point:

Lastly, I put a LOT of hot glue on the back of the blue star and stuck it on the yarn/board...trying really hard to make sure it was centered!!

*I knew where I was going to put this before I made it so I didn't put anything on the back to hang it up with. You can add something to hang it with if you would like. I set mine on my mantle.*

It is SO EASY to put together!! Like I said before- it look so pretty!
