Not all of us can have a home with a picket fence, but we can have a picket fence on our front door! Welcome your Independence Day party guests with this Fourth of July door decor.
Designed by: Danielle Hunter
Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Level: Moderate Handiness
Size: 10 x 10 inches
Here's what you need:
- All Purpose Dots™
- Craft Dots™
- Removable Dots™
- Paint brushes
- Darice hanging wood picket fence (remove jute twine)
- DecoArt Americana acrylic paint (white wash, true blue, primary red)
- DecoArt Media Fluid acrylic paint (primary yellow)
- Assorted wood shapes ( I used stars, heart buttons, laser cut out circle, alphabet tiles to spell “Welcome”)
- 8 inch piece of rope ribbon (red)
- 10 inch piece of twine (red/white)
- Glitter (red, white, blue, gold)
- Clear acrylic sealer
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.
Use Craft Dots to attach stars to laser cut circle as shown.
Adhere decorated circle to center of picket fence with All Purpose Dots.
Spray the completed project with clear acrylic sealer and allow it to dry.
Now you're ready to greet your guests with some fun holiday decor!
