Uncle Sam

The other day while on Pinterest, I came across a pin with an adorable Uncle Sam. I clicked on the picture and it brought me to THIS BLOG/POST. Needless to say, I fell in love even more. So, down to my wood shop I went and made myself a replica of her Uncle Sam.


-8'x12' cut to 4 feet (body)
-2"x2" cut to 16.5 inches (hat brim)
(2) eyebrows

Once all the pieces were cut, I traced where I wanted the face and beard to be.

After I painted the Uncle Sam, I distressed and stained. Next, I glued his nose, eyebrows, and hat brim onto the body. I let the glue dry overnight.

He turned out so cute. I love when a project turns out just how you pictured it.

Here are my fireworks I made last year. You can find that post HERE.

This is my porch decorated for the 4th of July.

I made these cute stars and hung them on my bannister.

God Bless America!
