American Flag Table Runner

When I found this long, thin American flag at a yard sale I wasn't thinking this...

But the idea hit me when I was cleaning out the basement and found the flag. 

I was wondering what I was ever going to do with it. 

My first thought was to hang it from the gazebo we built out on the deck... but as I passed the kitchen table it struck me.

This would make a GREAT table runner for the summer!

It was more than long enough for my extra long farmhouse table.

It's even long enough if I add the 2 huge leaves in the table.

So that's where the flag landed and that's where it stays!

  1. I'm in love with this patriotic runner!
    Happy 4th. and happy week.

  2. Although it looks nice, somehow I think one's not supposed to use the American Flag as decoration.

    1. Yes I believe you are right Lori, however this is not an authentic American Flag. It has only 8 stripes and is purely for decorative purposes.... Not sure I would have considered using an authentic flag in this way.

  3. I love this idea!! Looks great on your table!
