This year I've decided to try my hand at being crafty for the Fourth of July! In celebration, I decided to create some outdoor décor for my home. I love going to our local crafty antique stores and am certainly a Pinterest fanatic. So on one of my "waste time might as well go to the antique/craft store" adventures I found a bundled stack of old stakes. I was intrigued and put them in my basket. Of course I loved just the look of the bundled sticks tied with a single piece of twine. I thought I would just hang on to them for a rainy day project.
The other day my light bulb came on, and I realized exactly what I would do with these stakes. I would try my hand at creating a small sized wooden American flag for decoration. I had a million ideas about how to put it together but really wanted a easy go of it.
Looking like an American Flag yet? Well it will I promise. What a few cans of Red, White and Blue spray paint and some blue with white stars washi tape (from Pick Your Plum) will do for the finished project! Take a look.
Happy Fourth of July!
