Decorative Pallet Flag

Can't make much with the girls without adding some glitter, this time on the stars!
We were in the mood to make something patriotic and since we had some pallets laying around, decided to make them into a decorative flag. It was a pretty quick and simple craft and the nice thing about working with pallet wood is the imperfections give it character and charm and they don't have to be flawless for them to look good. The girls enjoyed helping and now we've got a little Americana to display for Independence Day! Want to make your own? Here's how:
1. Cut seven strips of wood an equal length.
We put in finishing nails through the back and front to really secure the wood.
2. Secure wood with two additional pieces of wood on the back.
Letting the girls at it!
3. Tape off section for blue. Paint stripes. remove tape and paint blue area.
The only time white crayons come in handy...
4. Trace and paint stars.
We attached screws then twisted wire around them for hanging.
5. Secure wire for hanging.
6. Display and enjoy!
