Sifting through Pinterest, as usual, I kept coming across all of these painted wood flags; they all looked so pretty & perfect, but honestly, who wants to nail a bunch of boards together? I’m not a big fan of that. So I took the easy way out. I went to the farm and picked up an old pallet and brought it home. That was MUCH easier. The hardest part was sawing the pallet in half. Andrew says I can’t use the skill saw without adult supervision and since he is never home early enough to supervise me, that means I had to saw it apart by hand.
You Will Need:
-1 wood pallet
-I didn’t cut the pallet in half until last, but it may be easier to do that first. So whichever way you choose, cut the pallet in half.
-Using the blue painter’s tape, tape off the blue stars part of the flag and the white stripes
-For the red stripes I used red spray paint because I already had it
-Next thing you need to do is take the tape off the white stripes and paint them white
-Take the tape off the blue section and paint it blue. I let it dry overnight after this to make sure.
-I printed a picture of a star off the internet, cut the center out, and used it as a stencil.
-I used the stencil to paint the stars over the blue part of the flag.
Total cost: $0 and some labor
