Coastal 4th of July American Flag

Last week Stefanie was shopping at one of our favorite stores, HomeGoods, for a few last minute items for her guest house before her mother-in-law arrived.  Like she often does, she text me a picture of something I might like.

I have been looking for 4th of July decor with a coastal feel and this was perfect. Unlike every other time, instead of texting her, “Buy it!”, I told her to put it back.  I could make this one myself or at least similar. Off to Michaels I went. 

I bought the least expensive canvas there and paint colors I knew I would use again. Everything else I already owned. 

I used painters tape to help me create the stripes and square.  First I painted the red stripes and let it dry.  Next the blue square and let it dry. Finally I glued the starfish in the square.

Exactly what I was looking for and it only cost me $11!

Either sit in leaning on your mantel…

Or replace it for another item just for the season…

I think I’m going to leave it right above my entry table.
