DIY Pallet Wood American Flag Frame

8 Materials
2 Hours

We created a giant pallet wood american flag for our family room wall just in time for the 4th of July! Our newest patriotic DIY pallet projec t only took 2 hours to make & cost nothing to create thanks to supplies we already had on hand at our farmhouse! Sharing the step by step process of how to make this large American flag wall art for your home below.

Measure Your Flag

Iron & Measure out your American Flag so you know how big to make the wood frame. Although, our vintage American flag was originally 3 by 5 foot long it had definitely shrunk over the years.

Create the Frame to Add your Flag

Cut your scrap wood for the back frame of the pallet wood american flag making angled cuts for the corners & a few vertical boards for inside of the frame. We secured the scrap wood frame with L shaped brackets & 3" screws.

Cut Up Cardboard for the back of the frame

Using a giant Ikea box, we cut & stapled the back of the frame of our pallet wood American flag. The cardboard helps keep dust out & gives the frame a smooth back when hanging against a wall.

Attaching the Flag to the Scrap Wood Frame

We laid our American flag over the scrap wood frame & taped it around the edges with clear packing tape. We framed the front & sides of the American flag with pallet wood because it's free & brings so much character to your project. We started by cutting up a pallet we had sitting in our garage. If this is your first pallet project, you can check out our 6 easy steps to cut up a pallet here. We attached the pallet wood with our handy dandy pin nailer so the nails would not show giving the Wood American Flag a clean look. Wwe stapled twine to the back of the american flag frame to hang it on our wall. For more questions about our DIY pallet wood American flag, you can click on the blog link below.
