Painted Lawn Stars

As it's the 1st of June, I thought I'd re-share a post from last 4th of July. Mr. Concrete and I came up with the idea for our painted lawn stars on the spur of the moment, and completed it the morning of the 4th.

This year I wanted to give everyone a bit more time to plan this out just incase you want to have the most patriotic lawn in the neighborhood!


This entire project 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...

(Just wanna say, that I've had several questions since I last posted this about the paint harming or killing the grass. I now have proof that there were absolutely no ill effects from the stars. As soon as the grass grew out, we mowed it off and the grass was exactly as before. This paint is made for grass!!!)
