It’s that time again, CRAFT LIGHTNING!!! Craft lightning is a series where bloggers get to participate and we each share a craft that is done in 15 minutes or less (excluding dry time). The material to use this time around was wood and right away I knew I wanted to make something with a wooden star. I didn’t know exactly what I was making until I arrived at the craft store. When I was in the aisle with the wood cutouts I saw these chalkboard stands and I thought I can make a Patriotic table place card.I knew I could get this project done in 15 minutes because all the pieces were pretty much done. I did have to do a little bit of work though to get my end result, but like I said it only took 15 minutes. The supplies I used were:

  • Wood star cutout
  • Mini chalkboard stand
  • Glue gun
  • Plaid FolkArt Acrylic Paint in Cobalt Blue
  • Plaid FolkArt Glitterific Paint in Clear Hologram
  • Trays
  • Foam Brush

The first thing to do is paint the wood star blue then let it dry.Next you can add the clear hologram glitterific paint right on top of the blue and let that dry.Now you just add a dollop of hot glue to one of the top corners and place your glittered wooden star right on top. And that’s it, you now have a Patriotic table place card ready to be set on your tablescape. It doesn’t just have to work as a place care though, you can also use them as table signs. You can make a couple and run them down the center of your tablescape and each one can say a different Patriotic saying.I hope this inspired you to craft up some Patriotic stuff especially since Memorial day is this Monday. Good thing about this one is that it’s so easy to make you can knock it out during the weekend. Happy crafting!!!!
