I will provide stencils for each firework, one to be stars, one to be stripes and the last to have a fireworks design on it.

You will be painting each of the boards and them assembling your star.

The USA tags will be made from rustic fence boards. You will have three tags to create.

I will provide stencils for one tag to be a star theme, one to be stripes, and one stencil to say "USA".

I have a limited supply of the rustic boards so these are first come first serve.

Project Fee: - $35



I will provide you with a selection of fabrics in red and white, a blue rectangle that will act as your field of stars, a decorative board which all the fabric will be hot glued to and twine to hang the flag with.

Project fee: $40


PROJECT 10: SCRABBLE TILES SIZE: 4.25x5.5 each block, new wood or

6x7 each block, new wood

The SCRABBLE blocks will be done on new pine wood and will measure 4.25x5.5" or 6x7" per block. Be sure to let me know what letters you will need and remember that some letters will be used more than once when they criss cross. The blocks could spell out family names or inspirational words or both. I have had people include special dates in their signs as well.

Project Fee: - 4.25x5.5: $2.50 per block - 6x7: $5 per block


PROJECT 11: FAMILY CELEBRATIONS SIGN SIZE: 5.5x24, 7.25x24 or 9x24 new wood

This project is such a great way to celebrate special days with your friends and family.

You will need to decide how many circle tags you would like, which could represent birth dates, special events, holidays, etc. and how many heart tags you would like, which could represent anniversaries, etc.

Be sure to let me know how many you need when you RSVP. Also let me know if you would like your sign to say "Family Celebrations" or "Family Birthdays".

Your cost for the FAMILY CELEBRATIONS/BIRTHDAYS SIGN will be based partly on how many circle and heart tags you would like. Each project will require a base costing $20, $25 or $30.

The circle tags will cost $7 per 10 tags and the heart tags will cost $1 per tag.

For example, if you want to order 30 circle tags and 1 heart tag with a 5.5" base your total will be $42. $20 for the base, $21 for the circle tags ($7x3), and $1 for the heart tag. I hope this is clear enough.

Please, please ask me if you have any questions!

Project fee recap:  - 5.5x24: $20 per base

- 7.25x24: $25 per base

- 9x24: $30 per base
