Guide to creating your own Flag. A fun no sew diy Boho Americana Flag instructions by PNWFarmhouseDesignCo. A beautiful decor piece for Memorial Day and Fourth of July. Customize the ribbons/materials to fit the look you visualize.

Instructions

I started off measuring how large I want the whole project to be. When I started, first I had purchased fabric that had the stars on it already and cut the 50 stars out.... after assembling the whole flag, I found the material was TOO small for the size of my flag.

First, paint the 3 foot wood dowel so it can be dry to adhere your fabric to it.

Next, I took a blank navy blue canvas material, and cut it to 15" by 23" giving an inch at the top to adhere to the dowel. Once material is cut, I adhered the vinyl stencil of the 50 stars that I designed and cut. If you do not have a vinyl cutter, you can order from me the vinyl stencil that I have designed to fit the 15" x 23" cut material, link in the material list.

Take the fabric paint and sponge brush applicator and dab the white fabric paint to the stars. Once dry, you can peel off the stencil.

You can, at this point glue (or you can sew if you choose to) rick rack trim around the stars/blue fabric. Glue the stars portion onto the wood dowel.

Next, I went and cut strips of red & white ribbons and material to 52 inch strips.

Lay down everything as you go, so you can visualize and plan your flag and how you want the different fabrics and ribbons to look. I personally liked a lot of white sheer fabric and layered the ribbons on top.

Once you have it how you like it, start gluing this baby up! Glue the sheer first, then the ribbons. I like to glue it all about an inch to hide the freyed ends behind the dowel, so when it's hanging/ displayed, the top will look clean. Totally your choice.

Finally, once this is all glued on, I would cut the rope to the desired length and staple gun it to each end of the dowel. Option, you can drill holes on the top of each end and place rope through and make a knot big enough to support the dowel.

Hang it and enjoy this beautiful wall decor.
