I didn't get my project for this week done in time so I decided to post our flag instead.
This is a project that my husband Chad and I did last summer. I am a proud American and Navy wife so I always make sure that my colors are flying first thing every time we move.
I'm not sure where the idea came from, I just thought that it would be cool to collect some drift wood from the beach and make this flag.
We went and got about 15 pcs of wood, cut the pieces to about the same size with a hand saw so the edges would still be jagged, then attached two one by fours to the back to hold it all together.
Then I covered up each area seperately and spray painted the red and white. The blue aera was painted white. I cut out small stars from an old pair of jeans and taped them onto the square. ( if you don't tape them down, they will fly off when you spray)
This is the finished flag on our front porch. I have two spot lights in front of it and at night they illuminate the flag with a faint blue light.
