DIY Patriotic Rag Flag

Who doesn’t love a Patriotic DIY!?

I know I DO!

Lets make a Patriotic DIY Rag Flag!

Decorating my house for the 4th is one of my favorite things to do! Nothing says summer more than seeing flags everywhere! Where we live it seems like winter never wants to end, so when spring and summer arrive we are jumping for joy!


Here is the supplies you’ll need to complete this rag flag!

Wooden Slat

Scrap Ribbon & Fabric. Choose as many as you’d like! You want to keep them in red and white colors, to represent the stripes on an actual flag.

Wooden Stars

Paint in White & Blue

Dark Wax (optional)

Glue Gun

Jute Twine

Drill & Bit (for holes in the wood)

I got most of my supplies from Walmart & Hobby Lobby.

That is all you need!

It is super easy and super cute!

First you need to cut your strips, making sure you have plenty to fill your piece of wood. You want it to be full looking!

Drill your holes in the wood, you’ll add twine later.

Next paint your board blue and your stars white, attach the stars once the blue is dry. You can now add the brown wax over to give it an aged look, this is optional.

Next glue your strips of fabric with a glue gun to the opposite side of the wood.

Then add your twine hanger.

I do have a step by step video you can see here! It is easy to follow!

Here is the final result! How CUTE is this Patriotic Rag Flag?!?!?

I’m in love the way this turned out, it is going to be hanging on my porch! I just LOVE anything Patriotic! I have so many more Patriotic DIY’s coming, be sure to come back and check them out!

Hope you enjoy this project as much as I do!
