The entire month of July is patriotic in Utah and Idaho not only because of the 4th of July but also because we celebrate Pioneer day on the 24th of July. Pioneer day is a state holiday in Utah and is treated much like the 4th of July so for us it isn’t over after the 4th.. it’s only beginning.
We tend to craft Patriotic crafts all month long! If you are one of our awesome followers you might remember back in February when we made this fun Ombre heart out of wood flooring scraps. I took 4 pieces of wood flooring and hooked them together using the tongue and groove that is already part of each wood piece. Once together I glued them into place, traced a star on the wood then cut it out using the jig saw.
Once it was all cut we painted each slat a different color (Red, white and blue) after the star was completely dry we sanded the entire thing really well including the edges then glazed it with a brown glaze (brown paint watered down) to give it a rustic look.
Turned out so fun!
