In honor of flag day, I thought I’d repost my favorite flag, an Upcycled Window Pane Flag. Hope you enjoy!
I have had this old window frame with this flag panel in it for years. I LOVE it, but as you can see it is really faded. So I thought it was time for some updating.
We had some wainscoting that was left over from our banquette seating project and thought that would work great if I ran it horizontally. I had my handy hubby cut me a piece that would fit the window frame..
Here are the supplies you will need:
white spray paint
red paint- I used Martha Stewarts red glitter paint
thicker white vinyl
Silhouette machine if you have it.
First step: spray paint your wainscoting white. When the paint is dry nail it to the frame.
I then painted the upper left hand pane navy blue and then painted each strip with red paint. I left the white stripe alone.
For my stars I used my silhouette machine to cut them out. I used the heavier vinyl instead of the thinner stuff. The thinner didn’t want to adhere to the wainscoting. The thicker vinyl adhered very well. I cut 12 and used 10. If you don’t have a Silhouette or Cricut you could just cut them out by hand.
After I put the stars on the flag, I lightly dry brushed some brown paint to antique them.
The finished Project.
I put it on my mantel with my USA frames that I made last year for 4th of July.
Here is a picture of the whole mantel.
