Memorial Day Star DIY- From trash to treasure

Memorial Day is coming soon and I want to add some patriotic flair to my front porch. I have this old star on my back patio that I think will work perfectly. I had planned on throwing it out long ago… but I didn’t. And now I’m so glad I procrastinated and it’s still here!

My old and badly neglected star.

I think it will look great with some stars and stripes! All I need is some painters tape, spray paint, and a few vinyl stars. First I need to spray the star white and then add my vinyl stars (star stickers will work just as well if you don’t have vinyl).

Once I add my stars and tape off the part of the star that will be striped, I’m ready to spray on the blue paint. Next, I add the painters tape for my red stripes.

Just missing the stripes now!

Once I add my red stripes it’s all finished and ready for my porch!

The finished product!!
