Add a touch of patriotism and creativity to your home decor this summer with red, white, and blue patriotic DIY flags.
Let me show you how!
- Red, White, & Blue Felt Sheets - Scissors - Pennant Banner Template - Star Shapes - Pen or Pencil - Thread - Needle - Bamboo Skewers - Fabric or Hot Glue
Gather all of your supplies a large working surface. Print the pennant banner template on heavy cardstock, and cut out.
Trace the banner template & the star shapes on felt sheets with a pen or pencil. Cut out flag & star shapes with sharp scissors.
On your cut out flag shapes, arrange the star or stars in a pattern you like. I made each flag different by arranging the stars in a different ways.
You can either sew the star shapes onto the flag or you can make these patriotic DIY flags even easier by using fabric or hot glue to affix the stars to the flag.
I used a simple blanket stitch to attach the star cuts to the felt flags. For details on how to blanket stitch, visit the blog.
Once all of your stars are affixed to your flags, you can attach the flag to a skewer by using glue. Trim any access felt, and your flags are ready for flying!
With the craft complete, it’s time to decide where to display & enjoy the patriotic DIY flags you made.
