I Pledge Allegiance


*I copied the idea for the subway art from HERE.

Pledge of Allegiance Subway Art Supplies:
-(2)5 ½ “X 6’ cedar fence boards CUT IN HALF. Then cut (2) 34” pieces and (2) 12” pieces of cedar fence boards
-17.5" x 34" piece of MDF board
-(6) screws
-walnut stain
-blue paint
-paint roller
-subway art vinyl.
Paint your board. You do not have to go to the edges since the wooden frame will be there. After the first coat has dried, roll on another coat and let dry.
Next, stain the boards with the walnut stain. Let the stain set for a minute, then wipe off the excess with a paper towel. Now, place the stained cedar slats on the MDF board. Attach the cedar slats to the MDF by screws or glue. I placed screws at the top and bottom of each of the 34' boards and in the middle of the 12" boards. Let the whole thing dry for a few hours.
Now, apply the vinyl. Go HERE for a great tutorial on how to do that. Go HERE to purchase the Pledge of Allegiance vinyl.

I made these Stars & Stripes Forever blocks a few years ago.
