If you’re looking for a creative way to re-purpose a free or cheap wood pallet, check out this easy DIY painted flag – great for the 4th of July and all year long! 🙂

For this craft you’ll need:

How to make a Pallet Flag for Summer

Directions:

  1. Wipe down wood as it may be really dusty.
  2. Next, you’ll want to determine out how far apart you’d like your stripes to be (or consider designating each piece of wood as a different stripe).
  3. I ended up taping for the red stripes first, painting them, and then removing the tape.
  4. When the red stripes were dry, I taped for the white stripes, painted them, and then let dry. Then I painted the blue area.

Since you don’t need much paint for this project, consider using any leftover paint you may already have on hand or purchase the small sample sizes from your local hardware/paint store.

Painted Pallet American Flag for 4th of July
To create the stars, download the free stencil HERE and print it out on heavy cardstock paper. Use a craft knife to cut out each of the stars. Tape stencil to pallet and lightly tap the end of your paint brush on each star using white paint. (Stencil Tip: Bleeding happens when you use too much paint so dip your brush in paint, unload some paint on a paper towel and then hold brush straight up and down using a light dabbing motion when applying to pallet).
