This project was SUPER easy... and I think it turned out pretty cute! We had (and still have) a ton of old wood that we are trying to find new purposes for. My husband (who is not a Texan by birth, but got here as soon as he could! ;) told me that he wanted to make a Texas flag to go outside next to our garden area. And, of course, I love my Lone Star State... so I was up for that challenge! Wanna make one too? Here's how we did it...
First, cut your wood to equal sizes, and cute two pieces to hold them on the back. You can make your flag any size you want. Just make sure that the width is 2/3 the size of the length. So, ours is 31.75" x 21". (I rounded off!)
Then, screw the boards into the back pieces. (Sorry, my pic is a little blurry on this part. But, you get the idea!)
Make sure that you pull off the painting tape before the section is completely dry.
After everything dried, I touched up little sections by hand, and of course, I distressed it a little with some sandpaper and voila! It is done!
