Paint one 7-inch block and one 3.5 inch block red. Paint one 7-inch block and two 3.5 inch blocks white.
Find a star shape that you like online. Print it out and then trace it onto contact paper. Cut out the star. Apply the contact paper star to your final white block. Paint the block blue over the contact paper. Sweep away from the center of the star. If you sweep towards the star, you risk getting paint underneath the sticker.
When the blue paint is completely dry, peel off the sticker.
Lay your block length-wise on the back of your glitter paper and cut around the block. Take Mod Podge and secure the glitter strip to the front of your block. Repeat for all of the blocks but the blue one.
Place your blue block on a piece of paper. Take a paint brush and paint Mod Podge over the star on your blue block, trying to stay within the lines as much as possible. Dump white glitter on top of the Mod Podge and brush off the excess.

This looks so adorable! I always struggle with getting 4th of July decor up, but this looks fairly easy and super cute!
