Wood Flag With a Little Shimmer...


Here's a wood flag idea....if any of you dare whip out your saw three days before the 4th.
I believe it's about 24" x15" made all out of  pine 1x2's.


I finished a few of Nicole's firecrackers to go along with it.


After painting all the slats, I secured the 1x2's. I first glued three wood slats on the back and then became really impatient and nail gunned them all.  Much easier!


I had a container of Hobby Lobby ornaments stars I was dying to use.  
I ended up clipping all the ornament loops off and hot gluing two buttons on the back to make the white stars pop up.


The star ornaments have an iridescent finish on them that made the painted slats look dull.  I ended up applying some wipe on iridescent glitter all over the flag (lightly) to give it a little sparkle.


There you go! Bright and festive for the 4th! 


Nicole has one last cute star project up next.  Stay tuned! :)

About NINE years ago after seeing the giant flag in PB I knew I had to have one, turns out it was only a prop...My family room was decotated in American at the time. I used wooden yard sticks to create my giant flag and didn't even need a saw! It is now hanging in my boys room... LOVE it...

I love the bright colors and the fact that you made a circle with the stars. Very cute!
