Nail Polish Painted Glasses DIY Directions:

• Clean the glasses being used in this craft with soap and hot water. Make certain they are completely dry and lint free before starting.
• Fill the bowl with water.
• Drop a few drops of nail polish onto the surface of the water. Use whatever color combination you like. This tutorial uses blue, orange, yellow, and pink.
• Jiggle the bowl a tiny bit to force the nail polish design to spread. If you like, you can use a toothpick and draw across the surface of the nail polish to make intricate designs.

• Once you are happy with the design in the bowl, slowly lower a glass bottom side down into the bowl of water. You do not want to hit the design straight on as it will create an air pocket that will mess up your design. It is best to lower one edge down, and then slowly straighten the glass out over the surface of the water to prevent air bubbles from getting trapped inside the design.
• Pull the glass out of the water slowly. Flip it upside down.

• Keep the glasses bottom side up until they are completely dry. This can take an hour or more, depending on how humid it is in the room. You do not want to wipe the glasses dry as touching them before the nail polish is dry and set it will mess up the design.
• Once the designs are fully dry, apply a coat of waterproof sealer over the designs using a paint brush to apply.

• After you apply the waterproof sealer the design is locked in and you should be able to wash the glasses on the top rack of the dishwasher. Eventually, with prolonged dishwasher cleanings the design will come off a bit, so if you really want to keep the design intact, hand wash the glasses as the design should last longer.

Working in the garden is a wonderful activity that is as rewarding as it is enjoyable. There is something satisfying about seeing something you cared for from the seed up produce beautiful produce, herbs, or flowers.

DIY Decoupage American Flag Sign

This DIY Decoupage American Flag Sign can be hung on your front door or inside your home or displayed on your patio for Independence Day – or anytime really since it is an “American Flag”. It is a cute way to add Americana decor and get crafty all at once.

Wooden signs have become quite a big trend over the past few years, and many people make their own. You can find tons of them in stores to choose from but many people enjoy making their own – customization!! It is super simple to decoupage a wooden sign, and even easier to customize this with the exact shades or red, white and blue that you like.

For the sign itself, you will need to either use some scrap wood you have around, and put your own hanger on the back, or buy a plain, pre-made wooden sign at your local craft store. The one shown in this craft already had the rope hanger tied to it so it made it super easy. You could also use twine or a red, white and/or blue ribbon if you like.

DIY Decoupage American Flag Sign Materials:

• Scissors
• Magazines – 2 or 3 is probably all you will need
• Elmer’s Glue
• Wooden Stars
• Paint Brush (for applying glue)
• Wooden Sign – pre-made or upcycled wood
• Ribbon, Twine or Rope and stapler (to make a hanger on the back of your sign if you did not buy premade)
Mod Podge
Mod Podge Spray Sealer

DIY Decoupage American Flag Sign Directions:

• Go through your magazines and hunt for American themed items you can add, as well as general red, white and blue pages. You will want a few different shades of each color. It helps to layer the pieces on and have a variety. As you are pulling pages out and cutting your shapes, put them into piles by color to make it easier for when it is time to glue. If your sign has separated pieces of wood the way the one in this tutorial did (it is not handmade), you have the stripes already laid out for you. However, if your wood is a solid you will need to decide before you glue how thick you want the stripes to be. Use a pencil and ruler to draw guidelines.
• Wipe down the wood on the sign to dislodge any dust of debris.

• Begin fitting your pieces together along the lines for the stripes. Make sure you plot these out before you begin gluing. Using Elmer’s glue begin gluing down the first section of red, then the white stripes. Alternate the stripe colors as you go. Keep yourself on track so as not to overlap a stripe into the next color’s area. It is easy to keep going and pass up the line if you are not careful.
• Do the same for the left blue corner laying out the pieces of blue first so you can make adjustments, and then gluing down. Use your finger to smear the glue over the edges too, to help the pieces lay flat. The Elmer’s glue dries clear.

• Paint your wooden stars white if you like, or leave them natural. If you do not have wooden stars, cut out a white star shape from your magazines and use that as a star (or glue it to the wooden stars instead of painting them!)
• Glue stars to the sign. Allow to dry completely.

• Use your paintbrush to brush on a thick coat of mod podge over the entire sign – paper, stars – cover it all. No need to worry about brush strokes as that is part of the charm of the project.
• Let the sign dry completely.
