Wooden Craft Stick Flags to make and use for several holidays

super simple craft flag

Level: Very Easy

This project is super easy and best of all quick. You can make this project and proudly display it for several holidays. Flag Day, 4th of July and Memorial Day to name a few.

Craft Supplies Needed

Craft sticks. These are larger in size than Popsicle sticks.
Acrylic paint in red, white and blue
Blue craft foam
Wood stars
3/8 round dowels
Hot glue gun. I used wood glue sticks.
Tacky glue
Craft mat or wax paper

Project Instructions

Paint 4 sticks red and 3 sticks white. Paint front, back and sides. Let dry.
Paint stars white. Let dry. Cut dowel in half and paint blue. Let dry.
To glue craft sticks together I set two sticks about 4 inches apart horizontally. Starting with the red stick lay it vertically across the two sticks and glue. Alternate with white and red sticks. Before you glue the last stick trim off the ends because the craft stick will be too long.
Cut a square from the blue foam. Approximately 3×2 inches. But you may need to eyeball it and trim it.
