Painted Burlap Flag DIY


After making two wreaths and one painted monogram hoop,

I still have burlap fabric left.

So I spent a few minutes looking through pinterest and boy they don't disappoint.

If you get a chance, drop by and check out some of the adorable flags.

If you aren't into making your own, they have some really cute ones for sale on Etsy.

Here is my no sew spin on it...

I picked up a flag stand at our local garden center.

I measured out enough to cover over the top.


Make sure you double it like below.


I found some cute letters here that you can download.

I changed mine up just a bit.


It's pretty much a repeat of how I did the monogram hoop


You just place your pattern under and paint over the lines.


Painting is my favorite part..


Once your paint is dry...

This is where I cheat a little.

I hate to sew. 

Any chance I can get around it ... I do.



Tacky glue to the rescue!


I just went along the edges and zig zagged around the center.

The glue also prevents it from fraying on the edges.


Make sure to leave an opening at the top of your flag so you can slide it over your pole.


And what cute flag is complete without a burlap bow...


You can see here that the glue dries clear.



Love love love these cute little flags.

When fall inches a bit closer, I will change out the bow along with my wreaths.


Little by little I'm looking forward to cooler temps and fun fall projects.

No rush though... just enjoying the journey :)

  20. Speaking of just adding your favorite jacket, Bandage Dress Lubov almost always wears Herve Leger separates.Perhaps because of Herve Leger Replica how we show our pieces, or just the assumed way of Herve Leger, Oktoberfest outfit people tend to wear our collections together, as one piece. But I like them as separates; it’s almost cooler,” she says. “I would put this jacket with a pair of jeans or a work skirt. And of course it all Animal Costumes but if you’re in L.A., you just wear the skirt with a T-shirt. The great thing about Herve separates is that it adds high fashion glamour to any number of basic pieces you already own.”depends on where you live,
