Here's what you need:

Here's what you do:

Add three coats of white and red acrylic paint to picket fence and allow time to dry in between coats. (For my project, I alternated the red and white.) Be sure to sprinkle red glitter over red paint and white glitter over the white paint, immediately after last coat.

Apply Removable Dots to wood shapes to secure in place for painting. Apply three coats of blue acrylic paint to wood laser-cut circle and hearts. Sprinkle blue glitter right after applying third coat. Use yellow acrylic paint for stars and sprinkle gold glitter on top after third coat.

Mix equal parts water and yellow acrylic paint and apply one coat to the wood alphabet tiles. Once paint has dried, insert red rope ribbon through holes in picket fence and tie knots at each end.
 
Attach the twine to each end of the fence with Craft Dot, allowing the twine to drape down. Using the same dots, attach the blue hearts to each end, covering the end of the twine.
 
Apply All Purpose Dots to the back of each wood alphabet tile and attach to the twine and fence to create a welcome banner.July 4th Door Decor finished close-up (3) copy
