A patriotic door hanging display may be just what your door needs this summer. This easy to make door decoration is a great alternative to a wreath. The rustic pallet wood stars look great painted in patriotic colors. So hang one of these on your door for the 4th of July or any other summer celebration.
- Darice Pallet Box Stars (three needed)
- Craft Paint in Red, White, and Blue
- Wood Adhesive
- Paint Brushes
The wood box stars have a rope hanger that is stapled to the back. I used a screwdriver to remove that from each one. You can discard the hangers. Remove the staples that are in the wood as well.
Paint each of the stars with craft paint. One in red, one in white, and one in blue. These may require two coats of paint per star. Just be sure to allow the paint to dry in between coats. Be sure to paint the front as well as the sides. You also want the paint to dry completely on all three stars before continuing with the project.
Use glue to adhere the stars to each other. I laid my stars out in the pattern shown below. You could actually glue them together in any configuration. Just add the glue in the flat areas where the stars touch each other. Allow the entire thing to dry completely before hanging.
Your patriotic door hanging is now complete and ready to add to your front door. You could also hang this above a mantel for some patriotic summer decor.
This is an easy way to add some Americana decor to your home or to a fun themed party. The pallet stars are the perfect rustic addition to any patriotic door. You could also use a more rustic paint technique or sand off some of the paint for more of a farmhouse feel.
Need a larger piece of decor for summer? Try adding even more stars to the bottom for a longer decor piece or on the sides for more of a collage feel. Either way, this patriotic star door hanger is sure to look great around your home.
