wood you like to craft - stars

This month's project was an awesome red, white and blue lantern made with stars. And all the other ideas were just fabulous!! You can check them out here.

However, they changed it up a little. You don't have to make your own version of the project, but they are giving a theme that you can make your own project from. When I saw the patriotic lantern and heard this month's theme was stars I immediately knew I had to make the flag that's been in my mind for months.

I made an extra to be part of my mother-in-law's birthday present. :)
I really like how they turned out. I cut some strips of wood down to the appropriate sizes. Painted. Sanded and banged them up a bit cause I wanted them to look antique-ish. Stained. Sealed.
If you take out the drying time, this was such a quick project.
Super quick, super cute. ;)
Maybe some day I'll make one of the super cute lanterns. :)
