Patriotic Barn Star

Barn stars are so Americana that I had to show you mine during this holiday week.

I found my barn star on sale at Hobby Lobby over a year ago. It was pink with flowers on it. My original plan was to buy an antique one with patriotic colors on it, but they were so expensive. So, I painted mine with acrylic paints, then added a sparkly coating to it. It hangs on a wall in our spare bedroom, which has a patriotic theme to it.

You can really see the sparkly varnish on one of the star's tips here. 

What patriotic items do you have displayed in your home?
