It’s that time of year when patriotic decorations come out, first for Memorial Day and later for the 4th of July. As a veteran married to an active duty husband with most of my family having served in the military, honoring our veterans and military families is important to me. I’m thrilled to join with 4 other bloggers that feel the same way in the Patriots Palooza Link Party. Today I’m excited to share an easy painted patriotic decoration and one of my favorite charities that support wounded veterans.
I started this project thinking I’d Mod Podge some flag napkins onto these letters I found at Walmart (for about $1.50 each). . You know sometimes craft projects don’t go as planned (can I get some crafter support on that one?). Well, my hat is off to those of you who are able to decoupage a thin paper napkin onto a curved surface, but I wasn’t able to.
So, Plan B kicked in and after sanding off the pieces of napkin, I taped off the letters and painted them with craft paint that I already had. ( I like to use aluminum foil to cover my workspace when I paint or decoupage. I find it easier to clean up.)
Come see the other amazing projects at the Patriots’ Palooza Link Party and please link your patriotic, red, white and blue projects up, too.
