Fence Wood Flags
My brother has been replacing his fence and I have been lucky enough to be the recipient of the old wood, as well as scraps of the new wood.
I decided that two pieces of wood made the perfect size for the flag, so the white stripe was painted to overlap both pieces.
Masking was essential for a nice crisp stripe.
…I aged each piece with stain. Wow! That new wood sucked up the stain. Only six flags used up more than half a quart.
I wanted something a little bit different than my normal sign construction, so I connected the flag boards with rusty baling wire.
The blue fields were attached with my staple gun.
After adding the hanger, they still looked kinda blah so I added an old bottle cap to the center of the star and ripped a strip from old blue jeans to tie around the hanger.
