Heyyyy! Welcome back. I took a little a break from the ol’ blog. Did you miss me? I thought so. Ha! I spent some time cleaning, organizing, hanging out with my nieces and of course Miss Shabby Grace. We did a lot of swimming and playing!
Well, Fourth of July is this weekend! Do you have any plans? We do and I’m super excited for this weekend. Also, I made this cute little DIY rug for our back deck. Come check it out!
First, I headed to HomeGoods. I grabbed an inexpensive jute rug,
Next, I headed to Michael’s for some stencils, stencil brushes and paint.
I came home. Laid the rug out and the hubs said, “What the heck?” Just wait and see hubs! Geezeee!
Then I got to taping. Luckily, this rug has horizontal lines that I could work with. Perfect!
Once that dried, I removed the tape and tapped over the red stripes.
Now, the STARS. Man o man those stars. The star stencil I bought was too small for the rug. They weren’t showing well on the jute material. I REALLY wanted the correct number of stars! I could NOT find a star in our house to trace of use as a stamp. I searched for an image on my phone and taped around it. Pretty clever, eh?
Once I places the star on the rug, I KNEW I couldn’t get 5 rows of stars in due to the their size. Darn. But after ALL that I wasn’t going back. On with the stars….
Happy Fourth Friends!
