Patriotic Home Decor

Decorating your home with seasonal projects is easy with Joy® embroidered letters! 

You will need:
  • Joy® Iron On Embroidered Letters - 3"
  • Wood sign
  • chipboard gear set
  • Pickling Wash
  • craft paint - dark gray
  • paint brushes
  • burlap ribbon - 1 yd
  • glitter paint - clear
  • adhesive foam star
  • stencil - brick design
  • stencil paste
  • lo-temp glue gun


1. Cover the entire front of the wood piece with Pickling Wash. White paint would also work, but I love this one because it looks vintage.

2. Use modeling paste and a stencil to add some texture to the sign. Let the paste dry, then lightly swipe across the top of the texture with paint on a dry sponge.

3. Sponge dark gray paint onto the chipboard pieces. Let dry then add glitter paint.  Adhere to the sign front using a low temp glue gun.

4. Remove the backing from the embroidered letters to reveal the adhesive, then place on top of the gears.

5. Create a bow with long tails from burlap ribbon then glue at the top of the sign as shown. Attach the small star to the ribbon tail.

Joy® embroidered letters, letter sheets and floral appliqués are available in different fonts, sizes and colors at your local craft store.
