Wood Flag Tutorial
2×2 flag tutorial:
a piece of 2×2 wood (I bought mine at Home Deport)
small piece of 2×3 wood
Paint (I used spray paint in a blue, red and almond)
Star cutout (I cutout a star in vinyl, but anything should work)
Glue (I used Wood Glue)
Red and Blue ribbon or Tulle
First cut your wood.
2 pieces 9 3/4 inches long
3 pieces 7 1/4 inches long
4 1/4 inches long
Here is the paint I used (you may need a couple of coats)
Grab 1 long piece of 2×2 wood and 2 small pieces of 2×2 wood and paint red.
Grab 1 long piece of 2×2 and 1 short piece of 2×2 and your 2×3 piece of wood and paint cream or white. On the 2×3 piece you only need to paint the top.
When the wood is dry add a star shape to your 2×2 piece of wood. You will want to use something that has a sticky back so paint can’t get underneath. I used vinyl.
Paint the 2×3 piece blue and once it is dry remove the star – Walla! you have a cream star on your blue block.
Assemble the flag and glue it together.
Once the glue is dry tie some ribbon or tulle around one side of the flag and decorate your home.
Very simple, easy and cute!
