Supplies needed for this patriotic farmhouse wreath idea:
- United States wood cutout
- Farmhouse greenery wreath
- EnviroTex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish
- Castin’Craft Opaque Pigments in red, white, and blue
- Measuring cups
- Mixing cups
- Stir sticks
- Wood skewers
- Hot glue and a glue gun
Start by measuring and mixing the EnviroTex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish. Be sure to wear gloves then measure out equal portions of each of the two parts. Be sure to follow the two cup mixing procedure that is outlined in the packaging. The most important part is to get a good mix here.
Then divide up the mixed resin into three small measuring cups. Tint each one with the Castin’Craft Opaque Pigments in red, white, and blue. Mix well.
Lay your wood cutout of the United States over a protective covering. I used a few spare measuring cups to lift it up off of my work surface as well. Then pour on each of the three colors. You can do this however you would like. Work to get it almost to the edges.
Then push the resin over the edges on all sides. Also, use a stir stick or wood skewer to slightly mix the resin colors where they meet. You can do this as little or as much as you would like. Pop any bubbles that rise to the surface then allow the cutout to cure overnight in a level position.
Once dry, use hot glue to secure the piece to a farmhouse greenery wreath. Then this one is ready to hang on your front door.
This patriotic farmhouse wreath idea may be just what your home needs this summer.
