Memorial Day Front Door Star

Pin It
Memorial Day Front Door Star

Forget a traditional wreath this holiday weekend and show off your pride with this faux quilted star made with Mod Podge and fabric. This is a great way to use up little scraps of fabric and ribbons.

Materials:
Metal or papier-mâché star
FolkArt Acrylic Paint - Azure Blue
FolkArt Extreme Glitter - Turquoise
Foam Paintbrush
Scrap paper & pencil
Red, white and blue printed fabric – 2 prints
Scissors
Mod Podge - Matte
Wood star shape
FolkArt Extreme Glitter - Red
FolkArt Acrylic Paint- Engine Red
Tulle
Hot glue gun
Scrap ribbons

Steps:
1. Paint the star with a coat of Folkart azure blue paint. Allow to dry. Paint 3 layers of turquoise Extreme Glitter over the blue paint. Allow to dry in between coats.

2. Make a template of the sides or points of the star shape with a piece of scrap paper. Use the template as a guide for cutting out pieces of the red, white and blue printed fabrics. For this design I used two different prints.

3. Apply Mod Podge to the star and place the cut pieces of fabric into the Mod Podge, add a coat of Mod Podge over the fabric. Smooth with your fingers and reposition if the fabric slips.

4. Paint the small wood star red and topcoat with 2 layers of Extreme Glitter in red. Hot glue a poof of tulle behind the star. Hot glue the tulled star to the center of the star. Tie decorative ribbons to the top of the star.
