4th of July Quilted Star

By:

A few of these cute 4th of July Quilted Stars from Cathie & Steve would be cute in a wreath, hung on the backs of chairs, or just hanging on the wall. July 4th crafts bring the patriotic spirit right into your home.

 

Materials:

Brand Supplies:

  • 2774 - FolkArt ® Extreme Glitter™ - Red, 5 oz.
  • 436 - FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors - Engine Red, 2 oz.
  • 643 - FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors - Azure Blue, 2 oz.
  • CS11305 - Mod Podge ® Matte, 4 oz.

Other Supplies:

  • Metal or papier-mâché star Red; white and blue printed fabric – 2 prints
  • Scrap paper & pencil
  • Scissors
  • Foam
  • Paintbrush
  • Wood star shape
  • Tulle
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scrap ribbons

Instructions:

  1. Paint the star with a coat of Folkart azure blue paint. Allow to dry. Paint 3 layers of Extreme Glitter over the blue paint. Allow to dry in between coats.

  2. Make a template of the sides or points of the star shape with a piece of scrap paper. Use the template as a guide for cutting out pieces of the red, white and blue printed fabrics. For this design I used two different prints.

  3. Apply Mod Podge to the star and place the cut pieces of fabric into the Mod Podge, add a coat of Mod Podge over the fabric. Smooth with your fingers and reposition if the fabric slips.
  4. Paint the small wood star red and topcoat with 2 layers of Extreme Glitter in red. Hot glue a poof of tulle behind the star. Hot glue the tulled star to the center of the star. Tie decorative ribbons to the top of the star.
