Paint Stick Stars banner and door decor

If you have been on my blog you have noticed that I like to do things with paint sticks. Well who wouldn't? They are a great tool to create with and they are free!

 One of my most popular posts is my paint stick flag

 So with the summer coming and Memorial Day and July 4th around the corner I decided I wanted to do another decoration to add.

I began with some small paint sticks for this project. Lined up sets of five and began painting them.

Red White and Blue!

Then with some E6000 I started gluing them in the shape of stars.

You can make as many as you like. They can hang anywhere!

I glued two together to hang on my door. One red and one blue.

 Then I gathered a red, white and blue set and strung them on some twine.

I had some old barn wood lying around in my shed. I lined the walls with the boards to get them out of the way. I just leaned them. I added a coffee sack to the window and attached my patriotic star banner!

I just love the way it came out! Lets hear it for FREE decorations!!!! There are plenty of possibilities to use these in other ways.

What are some of your ideas? I would love to hear them!

Celebrate and remember our soldiers past and present!

Happy Memorial Day!
