I have a fun 4th of July project to share with you today. I saw a picture of this project, but there weren’t any instructions. I thought it would be so quick and easy to make – and it was!
I picked up all my supplies at Hobby Lobby. My wood number 4 is about 8-inches tall. (Make sure that your number is able to freely stand.) The star paper is from the scrapbook department. You can find red/white bakers twine in the scrapbook or cake decorating department. You’ll need a small amount of red acrylic paint. You’ll also need matte finish Mod Podge to attach the paper to the 4.
Trace the wood 4 on the back of the scrapbook paper. I decided to put it on both sides of the 4, so I flipped it over and traced it both ways. (You can also paint the back of the 4 red.) Carefully cut out both images.
Paint the edges of the 4 red, including the center part (and the back if you are not adhering the star paper). Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the front of the 4 and carefully attach the star paper, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Let dry. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the top to seal. Let dry. Repeat on the back.
After it is dry, wrap the bakers twine around the 4 several times and tie with a knot in the front.
And that’s it! Super easy and quick to make!
I love it with my little patriotic bear!
Happy 4th! 🇺🇸
