I bought this wood kit from Pick Your Plum. It is a fun web site that has a different bargain everyday.
I first painted the edges, bottom and top of the wood blocks with Vanilla Bean paint by Martha Stewart (a brown). Then I painted the tallest with Cardinal Red, the middle size with True Blue and the smallest with Vintage White acrylic paint by Folk Art. I sanded all the blocks so some of the brown and wood would show through. I modge podged patterned paper on the blocks. The USA letters were cut out with my Cameo. I twisted the wire around a pencil.
Supplies used: wood blocks, star, twine and wire - Pick your Plumb; Modge Podge; Cardinal Red, True Blue, Vintage White acrylic paint by Folk Art and Vanilla Bean by Martha Stewart; Patterned papers - Alexander Hamilton, Charles Thomson and Thomas Paine in Let Freedom Ring by Pebbles; button - Sweetwater.
