Sharing is caring!

I’ve always wanted to make a DIY Wood Flag like you see all over Pinterest, usually from pallet boards. I didn’t have any pallet wood handy, but I did have the wood left over from my Sister project that I just showed & it was a perfect size.

In case you want to make either project, I went to Home Depot & bought a 2×12 pine board. It was a little pricey at $18.50, but the nice employee at Home Depot found a cracked piece that he sold me for 70% off-score!! He cut the pieces in 15″ so I was able to get 6 boards for something like $7. That is crazy inexpensive. 

For the flag I painted the board in two coats of white, using an old sample I had on hand. I was originally going to stamp stars, but I didn’t have a small enough star, so I bought star stickers from the Dollar Tree & taped off the corner placing 50 stars attempting to space them in a similar order.
I then painted over them in navy blue acrylic paint. I also used painters tape to paint the red stripes. Once this was done I peeled off the stars. I wanted it to have a vintage feel, so I distressed it &then gave it a light coat of stain, sanding some more. I added a sawtooth hanger on the back, but again the 2″ board allows it to stand as well. It may not be perfect, but I am pretty happy with it. I still want to make a pallet one though!
