Easy DIY: USA Flag Canvas Painting

Supplies Needed:
Canvas - 
(Any size you choose! I used 3ft x 2ft)
Red Acrylic Paint
Blue Acrylic Paint
Foam Brushes
Paper Plate for the Paint
Painter's Tape - 2" size
Star Stickers- 
 (I made my own - Silhouette cut file here
but you could use any size or type of star stickers you want!)

Step 1: 
Tape off the stripes.  (I took this pic before I added one more piece of tape to the bottom left.  Also, we did not paint that tiny little spot at the top right.)  Each stripe has 2 pieces of tape and the width of two pieces of tape between stripes.  Don't worry about lining up everything perfectly straight or accurately!! The end result will look great even if the stripes aren't straight or exactly the same size! :)

Step 2:
Add the star stickers!  
You could do them in rows like the actual American flag, or do a design of random sizes and placement of the stars!

Step 3:
Use red paint for the stripes and blue paint over the stars.

Step 4:
Peel off the stickers and tape immediately when you're done painting.
