Here's another flag block with a beachy-twist. I got this idea and the directions from How Does She? but again, stacked the blue blocks to keep the flag even. I white-washed the wood on all sides with a watered-down vanilla colored acrylic paint. After that dried I got out the Mod Podge and adhered some beachy looking scrapbook paper to the blocks. I sanded the edges of the paper EXCEPT for the two edges of the blue blocks that meet. I wanted that to look as close to one piece of wood as possible. I used hot glue to attach that cute little starfish and then tied the whole stack of patriotic blocks with a burlap bow.
Puts me in the mood for a little July 4th celebration...ON THE BEACH!
