Rustic American Flag Using Pallet Wood

A beautiful day on the deck perfect for a little flag making...

Rustic DIY American Flag Pallet Project

I screwed together several rustic boards to form a base.

A quick coat of white paint leaving the rustic sides of the wood exposed.

Using painters tape I sectioned off areas for my red stripes.

It's looking a patriotic already!

The tape was removed to reveal the white stripes, then I painted a bright blue field.

I traced a large star that I cut out using my cutting machine
and painted it in with white.

I gave the flag a coat of dark wax for a rustic look and that was it.

  1. I love that look! It came out perfect Susan! Happy 4th indeed. Pop on over when you have a chance; I'm having a giveaway.


  2. The 4th is coming isn't it? I'm skipping making a spring and summer wreath then, and just putting up last years 4th of July one. Procrastination paid off. I do however have a wood flag in need of some love, maybe you inspired me to also get that out and ready.


  3. Love it! I've made several, and one I've had on the fence for a year. :(

    I promise myself to take it down after the 4th this year. The good news is, it has help up well!
