DIY Mini Flags

Welcome to another edition of No-Sew Sunday! I’m joining a few other blogging friends to bring you patriotic projects you can do yourself … without having to do any sewing!  Today is Flag Day so it seemed apropos to host a patriotic theme today. Join us the second Sunday of each month at 6 pm CT for a round of no-sew projects.  My project is super quick and easy and something you can use for the 4th of July. I made a set of DIY Mini Flags using sticks and patriotic fabric!

DIY Mini Flags made with sticks and swatches of fabricWe have Silver Maple trees in our yard and they’re always shedding branches so the sticks were easy to come by! I’d rather put them to good use than burn them or bag them up to be hauled away.


DIY Mini Flags. See the full tutorialI found a variety of patriotic fabrics from Hobby Lobby for a very low price. And of course, the sticks from the yard are free so this is a super inexpensive project. You might remember last year that I found similar flags at the store, but they were sewn onto the sticks. I vowed to make some of these DIY mini flags this year, but I figured … why not hot glue them instead of getting out the needle and thread?


Tutorial for making DIY mini flags from fabric and sticksAll you need is fabric swatches, sticks cut to size, pinking shears (or use regular scissors) and a hot glue gun.


Cut mini flags with pinking shearsI used pinking shears to cut rectangles from the fabric because I wanted jagged edges. But you could certainly use scissors you have on hand.


Hot glue mini flags to sticks from the yardThen 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!
