Burlap Flags for The 4th of July

 OK, I am a little bit in love with these flags. They came out so beautiful and rustic looking. A great DIY 4th of July home decor. They were pretty simple to make, too. Plus, we loved making them, together!
 We had a large sheet of burlap. You can get burlap at any fabric store and it's very inexpensive.
 We cut flag shapes in a few different sizes. Emma loved helping with this, but Grayson is still a bit rough around the edges with scissor control.
 We painted right onto the burlap using acrylic paints. Since burlap has small holes in it be sure to have paper on your working space.
 For our smaller flags we used popsicle sticks and for the larger ones, wood dowels worked perfect. A little hot glue connected the two and that was it.
 What do you think? I am a big fan of farmhouse style so these flags are beauties to me. I am even hoping to make a large pennant banner using the same theme.
If you don't have burlap and want to do a simple craft with the kids you can also just use paper for the flags. Enjoy!
For more details, I shared this craft tutorial over at Kiwi Crate.
