4th of July Wooden Stick Flags

By:

1 Comments

Looking for 4th of July craft ideas?  Turn your leftover crafting sticks into beautiful 4th of July Wooden Stick Flags with instructions from Terri O.

 

Materials:

  • Craft sticks. These are larger in size than Popsicle sticks.
  • Blue craft foam
  • Acrylic paint in red, white and blue
  • Brushes
  • Wood stars
  • 3/8 round dowels
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun. I used wood glue sticks.
  • Tacky glue
  • Craft mat or wax paper

Instructions:

  1. Paint 4 sticks red and 3 sticks white. Paint front, back and sides. Let dry.
  2. Paint stars white. Let dry. Cut dowel in half and paint blue. Let dry.
  3. To glue craft sticks together I set two sticks about 4 inches apart horizontally. Starting with the red stick lay it vertically across the two sticks and glue. Alternate with white and red sticks. Before you glue the last stick trim off the ends because the craft stick will be too long.
  4. Cut a square from the blue foam. Approximately 3x2 inches. But you may need to eyeball it and trim it.

This is a very cute idea, but the instructions (especially #3) are not very clear. I also would appreciate more specific measurements. I used balsa wood, painted blue, instead of craft foam, looked much better.
