How to paint 50 stars and have them come out all the same and neat.

I bet many of you did as I did for this rustic American flag I made... 

I only made one star... easy and cute but what if you want 50 stars?

Well here is what I did on this American Flag Tray I painted... You can go to the post and read the whole process but I'm going to give you a tip.

First I painted my flag... this tray was perfect because it had these lines in it already.

Next I used an old piece of plastic and a small star hole punch. 

I measured 1" lines all the way down the plastic until I had 10 stars in a row all evenly spaced. 

Then I punched the star hole at each line.

I used a stencil brush with just a small amount of white paint and pounced in each star.

I repeated this for 5 rows.

This can be done on any flag and the star punches come in various sizes. I got my star punch at Michael's Craft Store.
