4th of July Project Compilation

We are getting excited for the upcoming 4th of July holiday, so I figured what better way to start the weekend than a 4th of July project compilation.

DIY Americana Cross Project

First, you will basecoat the Cross with Vintage Linen DIY Paint and apply two coats. Allow each coat to dry before applying the next coat. Allow your Cross to completely dry before moving on to the next step.

Next, you will free-hand paint the Foil Adhesive creating diagonal stripes. Take some of the foil adhesive out of the container and put it onto a foam plate. Then add some water (just about 1-2%). Using a 1/2" artist wash brush or foam brush, brush on the foil adhesive in a diagonal stripe. I just eye-balled the distance between the stipes. Remember beautiful things are never perfect!

American Door Hanger DIY 

First, you will pick out four different foils you want to use for your project. I used: Glitter Stars Red, Glitter Stars Blue, Glitter Stars Silver, and Stripes – Red/Blue/Silver foils.

Then you will take your sign and lay it over the foil that you are planning to use for each letter and star. I marked on the foils with a Sharpie making lines that I wanted to cut to keep the foils on each section (watch the video for this process).

You will then basecoat the entire surface with black Bondago paint and allow it to dry.
