Oooh say can you see.. the B O L D statement of patriotic PRIDE in this aDOORable front porch flag?!? Display your love for the stars and stripes B R A V E L Y with this simple star-spangled tutorial.
Step 1: Gather your materials.
Step 2: Using newspaper, cover areas surrounding your BLUE rectangle. Paint this area BLUE, making sure the newspaper stays in place. (Use scrap wood or other unwanted weighted material if needed.) Allow a few minutes to dry.
Step 3: Cover blue area, and every other board with newspaper in preparation to paint the RED boards. I like to start with RED at the TOP!
Step 4: Cover blue area, and every other board with newspaper in preparation to paint the WHITE boards. This is the last area left to cover!
Step 5: Line up your star stencil on the first board of your BLUE area. Double check to make sure everything is straight then spray your WHITE. (NOTE: Create your own star stencil! Print a star the size and style that floats your boat. Cut it out. Trace it onto thicker paper such as cardstock, or even a cereal or cracker box for my frugal friendz 😉 Now cut those stars out and TA-DA your own stencil! You’re so independent and self-sufficient, you GO GIRL!)
Step 6: Line up your star stencil on each remaining blue board and spray your WHITE. Remove (& ~Recycle~!) all the newspaper and set off some RoCkEtS of R E D G L A R E because You’re Finished!!
One porchscape. Indescribable. With flair and style for all.
