When I saw this awesome Flag over at Lake Girl Paints I had to make one for me! Deb did an awesome job, but I wanted to put my touch on one. So like last year's Flag, I went over to my neighbor to bum some wood. I decided this would be a use what you have project. I thought about getting new paint, but I have a basket of paint in the garage, so I would make do. He gave me 2 pieces, so I set about making one with the narrow one first.
First off I gave it a coat of gel stain in walnut.
I then taped off for the red, then white. Here are a few pics of that.
The star stencil gave me a little trouble, but I switched from the card stock to a foam brush and then it worked fine.
I really loved how it turned out! I just added a few eyelets at the top for some twine and then a few coats of poly and it is finished. Here are a few pics of the flag hanging from the side gate and all my red, white and blue!
