I recent made a Palette Board Cabinet that is here, and had some palette wood left over. I am a big fan of repuposed, old funky wood! I have always wanted to make a Palette Board Flag, haven’t you?
So my first step was of course, Pinterest! My second step was to look at a real flag and get the overall dimensions.
I set aside 7 palette boards and decided that would be enough. These were washed and laid out in the sun to dry. The palettes are 42′ long
Next I measured off 20 1/2″ for the blue rectangle that the white stars go. I measured down four palettes. I marked the rectangle of the blue, with a pencil.
Now I began the painting of each palette and set them out to dry.
I used my orbital sander to sand them a bit but this is optional! This is how they looked without the stars:
Before adding stars, I knew I had to screw them together so that I could use a stencil. To do this,find two strong support pieces and screw, onto the back, Be sure to screw each palette.
(Love how my husband helps with these parts!)
Here she is standing up! Now I had several star stencils around. A primitive one and a normal one.
Here is the primitive star flag.
Since these are big sellers right before the Fourth of July, I made two more!
Thanks for coming to my blog and rest assure, you can do this too! Let me know if you make one and please post a picture! God bless you and have a happy Forth of July!
