Pallet Flag

I jumped on the bandwagon and made myself a pallet flag. I love the US Flag. I love what it stands for and what it means.

Pallet Flag Supplies:

-red, white, and blue paint
-painters tape
-measuring tape
-star stencil

First, I had Matt dismantle the wood pallet.
I used seven boards and attached them together like so. Make sure the good side of the boards are on the front.
Next, I measured the stripes and star box. I taped each section off like so.
I painted my red stripes first. Once the red paint was dry, I covered the red stripes with tape and painted the remaining stripes white. Once the white paint was dry, I taped around the star box and painted it blue.
After the paint was dry, I made a star stencil with my Cricut and stenciled on the 50 stars.
Finally, after the flag was completely dry, I sanded it down to give it an aged look. To protect it, I sprayed the flag with clear glaze spray.
Here is the flag proudly displayed on my shelf.

God Bless America, Land That I Love...
