I love repurposing old and weathered fencing. However, if you don’t have access to such materials, you can still make a great Americana Flag for your flower garden or patio. I’m going to show you exactly how you can make this easy project.
The supplies you will need are as follows:
- 1×2-18 Grade Stakes (found in the lumber dept.)
- DecoArt Patio paints-Geranium Red, Cloud White, Summer Sky Blue (available at TheHomeDepot.com)
- Wire (brad nails) #16, 1-1/4”
- Wood Glue
- Paint Brush
- craft knife or scissors
- tape measure
- star template
- painter’s tape
You can choose to use screws, but using nails makes this an easy project for the kids to help with. After an adult gets the nails started, children will enjoy hammering in the nails. (always supervise children when using tools)
If you would like to make a larger, more to scale American Flag, you can buy the longer 24” or 36” stakes.
