DIY Pallet Flag


I love pallets.  You can so SOOO much with them, and they are usually FREE!


I got my inspiration from Pottery Barn's Flag.
I LOVE that you can use it inside or out.



I used four boards from the top of the pallet.
I actually made two flags. 
One with the chevron and one with traditional stripes. 
I screwed the four pieces onto two short scrap pieces of wood.
(After pulling out all the nails!)
Then...
I traced my chevron patter using my trusty overhead projector.


I then just cut out a star and penciled them in randomly.


I used lowes paint for this one. 
I used the colors "Cocktail Dress" and "Basin Blue" 


I LOVE the 4th of July.  I am sooo tempted to keep this, but
I took it up to the store.

  3. Pinning this!! I have some old fence boards I want to use for projects -- this would be perfect -- love the idea of the chevron instead of straight lines.

  8. That looks fabulous. I like our Canadian flag but your flag down south has more character to work with :-)
