Create and Build a Patriotic Flag With Paintsticks

    Sometimes the simplest things are the best. This paint stirrer flag looks easy to paint and put together. Our big box home improvement stores have gotten stingy with their paint stirrers. If I can't find any at the craft stores, I may use foot rulers. Do you have other suggestions? And I can get a starfish in the gift wrap dept. of one of our stores. Thanks for the idea and Best wishes 😇

    Instead of paint sticks I think I am going to use some mini blinds that I have that the rope broke on and I took it apart and not I have long Plastic Sticks that I think will work for this project too ...the sticks are about 36 inches long and about 2 inches wide ...they do have holes on each end where the pull rope was in but I can fill those in with Wood Putty...yeah that would work I do believe ....I love your Flag its awesome ....but like one reader said the paint stores are not giving away paint stirrer sticks anymore they little ones yeah but not the longer ones .....Love your Idea Love my Country and all those that have served to keep this Country Free and those that have died for us GOD BLESS each and everyone of them !!!

    I'd like to try this project. Did you use glue to put them together and if so, what type and brand did you use?
