Easy 4th of July decoration

Last year I made a super easy 4th of July decoration for outside.  I needed something large so it was visible from the street and so that it would take up the section of my front house I wanted to decorate. This tutorial from Tatertots&Jello was exactly what I needed.  I love how it turned out and I'm proud to display this each year around this time.

The changes I made where that I didn't use any vinyl and I didn't use spray paint.  I used craft acrylic paints in place of spray paint and I used a round sponge brush for the circles instead of vinyl. I also used duct tape that has a blue and white chevron pattern.  I had everything on hand besides the wood so this was a pretty inexpensive project for me.  If you make this for your home, I would love to see the finished product below in the comments!
