Frame a dollar Flag

I worked on this 5 min. craft YESTERDAY! YOU WILL NEED: frame, white acrylic paint, brush/sponge brush, burlap, dollar flag.

Frame BEFORE~ I had this frame sitting around in my cupboard, and then I pulled out a bag of patriotic decor next to it. When I saw the flag… I new that is what I would do… “FRAME A FLAG!”

Frame AFTER~ I painted the frame with wicker white acrylic paint. I did a glaze and soft stroke paint job. I didn’t fully paint it, because I wanted it to look a bit worn.


here is the flag, that I simply pulled off the plastic stick…..

then i CUT THE stitching off around the edges of the flag, it looked cuter with out it. Then I cut burlap and laid the flag over the burlap, placed the matting inside the frame with the burlap and flag over it, and closed it all up.

all DONE!

here is where I hung it, under my ” I heart America vignette” 😉 The wood block flag you see, I purchased the wood vinyl kit from a friend last year, then I painted it, sanded it, and added the vinyl. I love the wood flag. The berry wreath was purchased a year ago at a home decor store.
