We make these sifted flour stars on our front lawn every 4th of July.
Somehow, I forget to take photos of the process,
so here we are with photos from 2009(!)
maybe I'll remember to charge my camera battery this year.
1. Start by cutting a template out of cardboard or a piece of poster board.
Last year we used a pizza box.
This is a job for a grown up, I just cut it out free hand every year with a box cutter
but I guess you could draw the star first with a pen then cut it out.
2. Lay the star stencil out on the grass.
3. Spray the stencil with water.
4. Sift flour over the damp grass.
Remove the stencil/template and viola! Stars!
Works like a charm on the sidewalk and driveway too!
If it doesn't rain, the sidewalk stars last for about a week.
Our star spangled front yard and sidewalk!
Will you be adding any sifted flour stars to your front lawn
this 4th of July?
