I was playing around with paint sticks......
I know you are saying " she's at it again!" I love thinking up things with paint sticks. It will be hard to top my utensil organizer seen here
But this is something fun for Memorial day or any day. A folky/beachy looking distressed flag.
It's real simple but you need paint sticks! 7 to be exact! Don't worry they are FREE!
Red, White and Blue paint and antiquing glaze
two eye hooks and wire
Gather 7 paint sticks
I didn't cut handle but you can if you want a sharper edge. Paint red and white. Make sure you start and end with a red one. Paint a blue square in top left corner.
start distressing with antique glaze
I added a little ink too!
The get some clay and and sculpt a starfish. I used the back of a small paintbrush to texture it. Then glaze it.
Add eye hooks to the top and wire for hanging
Glue star on blue square
Since we are having a round of bad storms coming through I am unable to hang it out side.
I'll update later when it clears up.
Hope you like it! Since I had the clay paint and hangers this was a free to me project!
