Fourth of July Fun: Sifted Flour Lawn Stars

Last year we decked out the front yard for the 4th of Julwith these 
Sifted Flour Stars!

First I cut out a couple of templates with my x-acto knife/box cutter (star shaped of course)
from a couple of  scrap pieces of cardboard from our recycling bin.
Psst... Pizza Boxes work REALLY well for this!

Then, I armed each of the girls with a spray bottle of water. 

First, I asked each girl to lay down their template on the grass.

Then, they sprayed the grass with water inside the star shape (so the flour will stick.)

Then we used someWhite Flourwith my vintage Flour Sifter
on the stencils to sprinkle the front yard with a smattering of festive stars!

We also did some on the sidewalk.

They lasted quite a while.

You could add some chalk decorations or 
to add some extra pizzazz to your driveway or sidewalk.

Happy Celebrating!
