An Easy Tip for Adding Stars to a Hand-Painted Flag5:30:00 AM
Here is the easy solution to a problem I bet many of you DIYers have when painting
an American Flag...
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.
