Easy Framed Flag

Today I just wanted to share a super easy and cheap forth of July 
Decor item that is perfect for a mantel, shelf, table or in my case 
on the top of a TV stand
Framed Flag

 What you will NEED:

- Frame (I got mine at the dollar store)
-Blue Craft Paint 
-Tacky glue or hot gllue
-Red and White striped fabric (I had it on hand)
-White Craft paint
-Wood stars (I had some left over from the packet
I got for the 4th of July Wreath I made)
-sand paper

Since I had all of this on hand it was a FREE project!
Gotta love FREE right :)

What I did:

The first thing I did was paint the white frame blue
I did two coats letting it dry an hour in between 
Once it was all dry I sanded the edges a little bit
exposing some of the white underneath

While the paint was drying I tacky glued the red and white
fabric to the cardboard that came in the frame 

Once it is all glued it will look something like this
Make sure to glue it to the back so the front is all smooth
and make sure the lines are going horizontally

Next paint 3 wood stars white, once they are dry 
sand the edges and then hot glue them to the frame

Last step put your glass, fabric covered cardboard and backing
all back together and viola 
You have you super easy Framed Flag

Perfect for memorial day, the 4th of July, the 24th (if you live in Utah)
 and Labor day

It will be up all summer to celebrate 
the gratitude my family has for our country

It has been fun decorating for a the forth this year
especially on a thrifty budget
