Here's a twist on the typical stars & stripes decor.
For something a little different I added a touch of Boho style.
I started with a wooden star cutout from Signopoly.
The grooves make it easy to paint & add design.
I painted the entire star with the color, Fluff, from the Dixie Belle Paint Compnay. Then I painted every other stripe with the color Honky Tonk.
For the Boho detail, I used the Caravans decor transfer from Re*design With Prima. The transfer works best if the paint has had plenty of time to dry. So I waited overnight before adding the transfer.
I made a template, then cut the transfer to fit the remaining sections of the star.
I used the applicator tool that comes
I pressed the applicator tool down into the grooves to push the transfer into them so I wouldn't lose that detail.
To finish off the star and accentuate the grooves in the wood, I added wax. On the painted stripes, I first added clear wax. This makes the dark wax easy to manipulate and not be too hard to lighten on the matte finish of the paint. I didn't worry about the clear wax getting into the grooves because I wanted them to be dark. The area with the transfer didn't need it because it is a slick surface.
Then I added black wax down into the grooves in the wood, & also in the grooves of the transfer, & along the edges of the star, then wiped them back to smooth out the wax & give it a softer appearance.
Red, white, & Boho!
