Ten American Flag Inspired Projects for Summer

If you love American flag inspired projects like I do then follow along! 

I'm including 10 of my all time favorite flag projects in this post. 

When I say American flag inspired, I mean red, white and blue, stars & stripes and all of it! 

Take a look...

A comment I often hear on Homeroad is "Why doesn't your flag have 13 stripes?" or " You know you don't have enough stars don't you?" or "Do you know the real flag is supposed to start with a red stripe on the top?".

Yes, I do know. 

That being said, I am a creative and my flag inspired projects mean no disrespect to the American flag with it's 13 stripes and 50 stars. My projects are just that... creative.

Sometimes all the stripes don't fit. Sometimes I only want one star. Sometimes my colors are a little bit off.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate every one of you and your kind comments. It shows you're paying attention 💖
