Here’s an easy DIY USA wooden flag made with grade stake pickets. Perfect patriotic project.
Memorial Day is Monday May 24. It makes me think of the men in my family that proudly served our country. I decided that I wanted to make something that would honor my father and remember my maternal grandfather and father-in-law. That’s how I came up with this DIY – USA wooden flag made with grade stake pickets.
Honey Bee and I have been working on a project and on one of our MANY visits to Home Depot I found these stakes…
At first, I passed them by but then I glanced at the price tag. For a box of 12 pickets the cost was $3.47! Pretty great, right? At the time I didn’t even know what I was going to use them for – but then I came up with the idea of a rustic, antiqued flag. This is perfect for Memorial Day and Forth of July.
I got to work laying out my flag design…
**FYI** I had never used Gorilla Glue before. I didn’t realize that when the glue dried, it expanded. Well, I used too much glue and it expanded a lot. I also got glue on my hands which was very difficult to get off. I ended up using fingernail polish remover. **
This project was fairly easy – minus the Gorilla Glue learning curve 🙂 My total cost was less than $3.47. I only used eight of the pickets and I had all of the other materials on-hand. The other materials were leftover from other projects. The glue I “borrowed” from Honey Bees cabinet 🙂
I hope that you give this easy DIY – USA Wooden Flag Made with Grade Stake Pickets a try.
I thank and appreciate the military men and women whom protect me on a daily basis. I am proud to be an American!
