DIY Wooden American Flag

152 Views
My husband kept seeing wooden American flags everywhere and finally decided to make a giant one for our home. Most of the year it lives in our bar, but for the summer, it will serve as patriotic decor on the front porch that will take us from Memorial Day, through Independence Day, and all the way up to Labor Day!

We started with 5 8'-1x3 boards, cutting them in half to create 10 4' boards.

Then we sketched where our stars would go with a pencil and decided to cut a square and rotate this section of wood 90.

After using additional 1x3 boards to attach it all together, we simply used red, white, and blue spray paint to create the stripes and blue square.
