INSTRUCTIONS
1. Using the flat paintbrush and the Imperial Red paint, sparsely paint a 2" strip at the top of the wavy metal panel all the way across. Skip down 2" to 3" and paint another red strip. Continue this pattern until you have reached the bottom of the metal panel. You should have a total of four red stripes.
2. Paint the 14" star Nautical Blue and let it dry.
3. Paint the edges of the 6" star Adirondack White and let it dry.
4. Glue the blue star in the upper left corner of the metal panel.
5. Glue the birch round to the bottom of the white-edged star in the middle and let it dry.
6. Apply E6000 glue to the edges of the birch round. Apply hot glue to the middle of the birch round. Flip the white-edged star over and position it on top of the blue star. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue cools.
