It is wonderful to celebrate our Independence each year. And this is a perfect project to create to decorate for that Celebration or for year-round home decor!

We’ve made it very easy to have your project supplies delivered directly to your home and ready for you to begin creating. I also used the supplies to make the project two different ways – so pick the one you prefer and get started.

To create the Star String Art project, paint two Rustic Pallet slats with DecoArt® Americana® Light Buttermilk and two slats Tuscan Red using the foam brush. Position the star paper pattern (included in your DIY Delivery Box) on the Pallet and tape in place. Use a hammer to attach the Gold Stake Nails around the outside edges of the paper pattern.

Now you are ready to “string”. Tie a knot with Indigo cotton yarn on one nail. Begin stringing the yarn, wrapping around a nail before going to the next nail. String around the star randomly.

After filling in the star with as much yarn as you wish, use scissors to cut the yarn and tie off with a knot on one of the nails.

For the Vintage Star String Art version, use the foam brush to paint all the Rustic Pallet slats with Tuscan Red. Once it is thoroughly dry, used sandpaper – actually, an electric sander is easier, if you have one – to create a worn or vintage look by sanding all slat tops and edges.

Position the star paper pattern on the Pallet and tape in place. Use a hammer to attach the Nails at the points of the star only – you’ll use just 5 nails.

String the star using the Indigo cotton yarn, but only wrap around the nails 6-7 times, then cut with scissors and tie off.

If you get your DIY Delivery Star Sting Art soon, you’ll be decorating in plenty of time before the July 4th Celebrations begin!
