Flag Day is Next Week

Over the weekend, I featured two flags that my son is auctioning for his missions trip. Since flag day is coming on Monday, I thought I would search the web for other ideas for displaying the flag in non-traditional ways, trash to treasure style. Plus, I’ll feature a few of my own that I’ve made.

First, I found this picture of a flag painted on an old window.

Then I found a flag on Home and Garden TV that was made from old bats and balls.

I made the flag in the next picture myself from a cupboard door that I bought at a thrift shop for $1. I primed it and then painted on the stripes.

And I made this one by sewing a quilt to fit behind and old window.

This one, I made using a flag pillow sham. No sewing involved, I just stapled it on the back.

This flag is painted on wavy tin. I’d love to make one like it someday!
However you display it, I love the American flag! I hope you put yours out this week. 
One more thing, in my search, I found this Pottery Barn flag for $129. I have to admit, I like the rustic look of the one my son made and by using recycled wood, his is nowhere near $129. That’s the beaut of Trash to Treasure!
