Wait Till You See This Idea for an Easy DIY Patriotic Sign
Have you been looking for an idea for a creative, yet easy DIY Patriotic Sign? This just might be what you wanted!
This is not the first time that I have crafted with food….. in fact, I am beginning to do it more and more often so perhaps I need to give Crafting with Food its own category!
So…. have you ever crafted with pasta? I know it is not a new thing– kids craft with pasta in art class from a very young age. But I haven’t crafted with pasta for an adult craft, ever!
First, I painted it with acrylic craft paint.
I could have skipped the painting and used them like they were, but I like the red, blue, silver, and gold. There are Stars, Flags, and Liberty Bells.
I used leftover beadboard to make my signs. First, I drilled two holes. Then I poked some jute twine through and knotted it twice on each side. By knotting it in the front, it will hang evenly on the wall.
I separated the top layer from the napkins.
Then I used Mod Podge to adhere the napkin to the beadboard. You can paint over the top, or not.
I cut ribbon, and then hot glued it to the edges.
Then I hot glued the pasta on! I love the 3D look that the pasta gives.
Isn’t this star cute?
What would you craft with this patriotic pasta?
Here is a flag.
***I’m hanging this sign in my Americana bathroom! 🙂 Take a look and let me know what you think!!***
(I had a friend over to craft and she wanted to make a Patriotic sign, too! Here's hers!)
