Painted Lawn Stars
I told you yesterday that I'd show you how I made my lawn stars.
The entire thing took about 30 minutes from beginning to end.
A piece of old cardboard with a star cut out, some construction marking spray paint and lots of family on the front lawn.
We made the star outlines by painting around the star that was cut out of our cardboard stencil.
It was fun, it was fast and it was very patriotic!
Oh, and here's a Pinteresty pic if you're so inclined...
Update: This is now my most viewed post and it's garnered many questions. I'd like to go ahead and answer the three most asked questions here.
First... This paint is specifically made for using on grass and it will NOT kill the grass. I can personally attest to that fact.
Second... The paint is construction marking paint, it's intended to be sprayed upside down, and can be found at any home improvement store.
Third... It dries very quickly and is permanent. It only comes off as the grass grows out and you mow it off.
I thought I might also address the fact that I've been a teensy bit absent from my blog for oh, the past month and a half.
The last time we talked, I told you I was starting a second job back at the hospital.
Well life happened as life so often does, and things got a bit crazy here in the month of June.
As of this week, I'm no longer working in the office and am full-time back at the hospital.
I'm really excited about this change, and since I'll be working 12 hour shifts at night, I hope to have tons more time at home to spend with my family!
There might also be a tad more time to work on some crafty/decor things... I'm crossing my fingers!
Basically, I just wanna say I'm thrilled to be back with you at my little blog, and hope you'll join me for some fun in the future!!
