Red, White and Blue Mod Podge Craft

I have mentioned there is a craft store nearby that is going out of business.  Well let's just say I have been there a few times and now everything is at least 50% off!

I bought some blank MDF boards that were 70% off that I thought I could decorate with scrapbook paper and maybe paint.  

I don't have very many 4th of July decorations so here is what I did to the first board I bought:
It was super easy!  I painted the whole board with red acrylic paint.  Let it dry completely.  Then I sanded the edges everywhere.  
Next, I cut out the letters using my Cricut and Lyrical Letters cartridge.  I also found the stars and fireworks on one of my cartridges.  
Lastly, I coated the whole thing with Mod Podge!  I am very happy with the way it turned out.  

What an easy and quick 4th of July decoration!  It cost me about $1.50!  

What kind of 4th of July crafts are you working on??

P.S.  I am still looking for some guest bloggers.  I have a few spaces open, so if you are interested, please see previous post!  I would love to see what you've got:)
