Raid your kids/grandkids sports stuff. Walk through a park where there are ballfields. Check out yard sales (I found one for $.05 a couple weeks ago). If the balls are dirty, just wash with some dish soap and let dry. Barn red, antique white, dark blue acrylic paints, an antiquing medium and some spray sealer are all that is needed.
A few years ago I made one. I tried to get my lines all straight and paint real stars. Not this time and it was so much faster and so much more fun.
Close up of a star. You can see how primitively they are done but still look great.
After painting, antique as desired. Let dry thoroughly and give it a few light coats of the spray sealer.
Hope your weekend is off to a great start. It's that time of year again near the shores of Lake Erie ~ Canadian soldier time. Oh, how I despise these creatures, though they are supposed to be a good sign. The more that hatch from the lake, the healthier the lake.
My clematis - exceptionally gorgeous this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
