Let’s grab your supplies, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!

Step 1:

Grab your ruler, pencil, and the wooden pallet. Draw a straight line from top to bottom, about 3-4 inches in from the edge. This will help separate the sections of the ‘flag’.

Step 2:

Here, I chose the red Apple Barrel paint and painted the 1st and the 3rd slat on the side with the horizontal lines on the pallet.

Then i came back in with the White Apple Barrel paint to paint the remaining 2nd and 4th horizontal slats on the pallet.

On the left-hand side of the pallet, paint this section with the royal blue Apple Barrel paint.

Step 3:

I grabbed our 1 inch unfinished wood star pieces. I laid them out on the blue side of the pallet and hot glued them in place.

I chose not to paint them to give a contrast between the paints. This was also going to tie into the jute twine and raffia that will be placed on later.

Step 4:

Take the jute twine and hot glue the end on the backside of the pallet. Once dried, start to wrap the twine around the pallet along the line that was drawn at the beginning. I believe i went around 6-8 times.

Hot glue the other end in place on the back side.

Step 5:

Grab your desired ribbon choices. I came in with a red jute ribbon, blue star ribbon and the raffia. I laid them on top of each other and then took some floral wire to hold them together the red and blue ribbon.

You then will take a section of raffia and tie it into a knot. Hot glue on top of the floral wire holding together the grouped ribbon. Once set, hot glue onto your pallet. Then you are finished! It is now ready to place alongside you other patriotic themed decor to help finish off those looks.
