Fourth of July is just a few days away but it’s not too late to make some last minute decorations. I’m resurrecting my DIY Mini Flags decorations made from sticks and patriotic fabric!
I found a variety of patriotic fabrics from Hobby Lobby for a very low price. And of course, you can find sticks from your yard so this is a super inexpensive project.
Several years ago I found similar flags at the store, but they were sewn onto the sticks. I made the project a bit easier by using hot glue to attach the fabrics to the sticks.
All you need is patriotic fabric swatches, sticks cut to size, pinking shears (or use regular scissors) and a hot glue gun.
I used pinking shears to cut rectangles from the fabric because I wanted jagged edges. But you could certainly use scissors you have on hand and cut straight edges.
Then simply apply a line of hot glue along the top end of the stick, the length of the short end of the fabric. Then carefully press the short edge of fabric onto the stick and you’re done!
Choose a few coordinating fabrics for a fun look.
Group several mini flags in a clear jar so you can see the rustic sticks.
Or use one solo flag in a crusty vase.
Kids would love playing with these DIY mini flags and you can use them in a variety of ways to decorate your home or a party for the 4th of July.
This is such a fun and quick project. I hope you’ll give it a try!
