Today’s Make it Monday post is for the kids! Maybe you have children, or grandchildren, or even nieces and nephews who might enjoy it.
This cute little flag is inspired by folk art- it’s definitely different from anything I usually make and it’s far from perfect. The paint ran, the colors bled a little, but I’m kind of liking its imperfections.
All you need is this:
If you’re doing this with kids, my only advice is to use wood glue, or leave operating the glue gun to the adults.
You’ll need to lay out your paint sticks like this, alternating the notched ends.
Then, using either wood glue or hot glue, glue two of the sticks cross-ways. The notched ends will serve as a guide for getting your cross bars glued on straight.
Then, flip it over and place your star stickers however you like.
Go ahead and paint the blue field on your flag. Paint over the stars if you plan to peel them off. That’s what we originally did.
Then, alternate your red and white stripes on the flag.
In the end, we decided to use white star stickers since the paint bled a bit.
This was a fun, easy and cheap craft project. My kiddos loved it and I bet yours will as well.
