Here is the one I made last year for the Fourth. It broke in half over the winter right at the bottom of the red striped. Fortunately nothing broke so I can repair it.

Those are some pretty patriotic totems! Maybe some patriotic plate flowers--on wall or yard?

Its worth a try. Some acrylic paints last out side and toehrs dont. If you are putting it on your porch that could make a difference.
You could try and if it fades, repaint. I have some rocks I painted with regular craft paint that have lasted outside.

I posted this a few yrs ago...painted a pc of old barnwood w/shades of blue...added those "glow-in-the'dark" stars & such ...& put a wire hanger on the back...for in the gardens...the stars did shine in the dark for quite some time! Jeanne S.
