Mini-Wooden Flag

I have one more little patriotic touch to share with you that you first noticed on my Patriotic Front Porch Reveal.  I love this simple little wooden flag and think it added the perfect little touch to my side table on the front porch for the month of July.


Are you wanting a small patriotic piece for your house?  It is super easy to create! 

1.  Have the hubs cut some scrap wood into the sizes you desire for your piece. :0)   Paint a blue square and some red & white stripes.  I laid out my blocks before I started to make sure I knew what color to paint each block.

2.  Stencil your star(s) onto your blue block.


3.  Glue your pieces together.  Wood glue would work better than hot glue, but I was in a hurry and needed it to dry fast!  At the end of the  month I will take it apart and re-glue with wood glue to make sure it holds up for years to come.


4. Glue a yarn, ribbon, rope, or jute around the perimeter of your shape to help hold it together and give it a little touch of softness.  Then all there is left is to display and enjoy!
