Drop Cloth Flags

I don’t like buying flags. I don’t dislike flags at all — I just think most of the ones you can buy are cheap-looking!

Sue had the brilliant idea of printing your own flags on drop cloths. I love the vintage, tactile look of these flags — and you can make them, too! She shows you just what to do.

I love this idea of taking something simple — even dollar store bandanas — and making something that can be the centerpiece of your celebration’s decor. Kendra shows you how … and even tells you about her mishaps along the way! What a great idea.

There’s no better time than the Fourth of July – Independence Day – to make a rustic flag for your home decor! I love the texture and color combination: burlap and doilies are a great mix! Kalleen shows you how she did it – -and you can, too!

Meg shows us this amazing inspiration of a rainbow rug made from t-shirt fabric! It took a long time — she admits it might have been “pregnancy-induced” craziness, but what a great project. It’s a great idea for a spectacular piece that you could upcycle from old tees!
