Ever since we replaced our back porch, I have been coming up with ways to repurpose all of that old wood. I decided to make a Betsy Ross Flag sign.
I attached the boards together like this:
I love that the board already had perfect lines for my stripes.
I used a pie plate to make the placement for my stars and painted them by hand.
I then came up with the saying that I wanted and used my charcoal method to apply the wording to the bottom of the flag. After the lettering was dried, I stained the whole flag in dark walnut.
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord"
It measures 38 inches tall.
I just love Americana!
I think when the kiddos grow up, I am going to have a guest room in Americana.
That would be so fun to decorate.
As for this sign, it will be ready to sell at my craft sale in November.
