Wooden American Flag Bunting

6:00:00 AM




Recently I entered a contest and the theme was "patriotic."

So in honor of the Fourth of July I created a
flag bunting.  I had seen a wooden 
half circle door mat 
for sale at a local discount store and 
I knew someday it would be great for something...

today it was just what I needed for this project!

 I began by removing the rubber separators from one side of the walkway so it would be even more semi-circle shaped, 
then I tied it back together tightly. 

I screwed the smaller end onto a strip of wood for stability. 



 I spray painted the bunting white and marked off where I wanted to paint the blue and the red stripes

I used Americana paint by DecoArt



I was feeling lucky on this project because 
the vinyl letters I ordered a few weeks ago came today!

Perfect for my sign!


 I antiqued both the bunting and the sign, 
then heavily distressed them both using sandpaper. 

I screwed the entire creation together 
and hung it with an old chain.



This rustic wooden bunting I proudly hang
over my garage all summer!
