I know that the 4th of July is just a month away now so I thought it was time to get my crafts done that I wanted to make this year! The next few weeks I am going to be posting a lot of different decor to make for the home!
First up is a Flag made out of wood blocks! I thought it would be super fun to make a flag this way!
I looked through my hubby's scrap wood pile and found a few pieces that would work. He helped me get them cut down to size so it would make the perfect flag!
I pulled out my red, white and blue paints and got to work.
After the paint dried I sanded around the edges of the paint to clean them up.
Then I stained all the blocks with the color Early American.
While that was drying I painted a wood star white. I found a bag at the craft store with 8 of them in it. Perfect for all the crafts I am doing these next few weeks!
When that dried I stained it as well so it would match the white in the stripes that I had stained.
When that dried, I hot glued the star to the blue square.
Lastly, I stacked all the blocks together!!!
Here is what it looks like:
It is so fun all put together!! It was so easy to make too!
