Easy to Make American Flag Garland

Here's a quick and easy project for your summer morning.

I'm using small flags from a recent neighborhood parade but I am including my affiliate links so you can create the look yourself. 

I removed the sticks and folded over the edge. 

A flap is created with a quick burst of steam from the iron.

The free flags and a few supplies I had around the house were all I needed to create this quick and easy summer holiday garland.

I stretched out a long length of jute down my farmhouse table while I waited for the glue gun to heat up.

I hot glued the flags onto the jute at the fold then added muslin white flags between each American flag. 

On each white flag I added a DIY aged mini clothespin.

  1. Nice, why didn't I think of taking flags of the sticks? Hand to palm!

  2. No...not hand to palm, hand to forehead! Oh, my word, there's the reason I didn't think of taking the flags off the sticks, I don't even know where to slap my head when I go Duh!

    1. LOL Yeah girl! Off the sticks!!! Target has them in the dollar section right now! Run!

  3. That's a really clever idea! Love how it looks!

  4. I just love simple beautiful things, and you just made me love again.

  5. Very clever! Perfect for the holiday and so simple! Love it! Pinning!
