DIY Painted Wooden American Flag
This is such a simple project and can be completed in just a couple of hours. You will need a piece of wood, star stickers, book pages or any white paper, red and blue paint.
Paint your piece of wood red. I used spray paint. Tape off the corner where the stars will go. Paint the square white. I forgot to do this first, but later painted in the stars with a white Sharpie paint pen.
Place stickers on the square. I was able to fit 50 stars, but it depends on how big your wood is and how big the stars are.
After painting the square blue, I let it dry and peeled off the stickers. Then I was able to paint in the stars with the white Sharpie.
I used old book pages to make my stripes, ripping along the edges. You can use regular paper or even scrapbook paper. I glued them on with Tacky Glue.
That's it! Now you have an American Flag to decorate with! For more information, check the blog at Home On The Corner.
