There is still time to create festive Fourth of July Crafts! Try these inexpensive and easy star coasters. I made them as coasters, but they can be used for any type of decorations!
You will need:
Here is the saw that I love: http://amzn.to/29agss4
Plywood – picked it up at hardware store
Multi-surface paint red: http://amzn.to/29aggZJ
Multi-surface paint blue: http://amzn.to/294jbkE
Multi-surface paint white: http://amzn.to/294jyfi
Here is the video tutorial:
1. Trace your template onto the plywood.
2. Cut the star shapes out of the wood.
3. Sand the cut out stars.
4. With watered down paint, brush it onto the wood shapes, front and back. Allow to dry.
TIP: I used a multi-surface paint that is supposed to be very durable, so I did not put any other protective finish on it. I think with use they will gain even more character and I used it with my hot tea and it worked great! If you use a regular acrylic paint, you might want to finish it off with a varnish or polyurethane sealer.
That’s it! Happy Fourth of July! Remember Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Be safe!!
