American Flag Pallet
Hey y'all! It's been a while since I've posted on Grits and Pearls...I'm finally back on the blog and I have several things coming up to post! I've seen these pallet flags on Pinterest and have been wanting to make one since last summer. This week I finally did. It was a really fun project, fairly simple, and turned out to be a super cute decoration outside!
All you need for this project:
A pallet (preferably one with wide boards and smaller gaps between the boards)
Several paintbrushes (some tiny and some large)
Navy blue acrylic paint
White acrylic paint
Deep red acrylic paint
Cut-out of a star (I found one online, printed it off, and cut it out)
First, I had the top board of the pallet cut off to make it more square. Then, use something with a straight edge to trace a line down the middle of the first three sections of boards (for the blue section of the flag).
Next, trace all of your stars out on the pallet. *Note: you can paint the blue first and then the stars, but I painted the stars first so they would look a little more defined when I painted the blue. Then, paint an outline on each of the white stars.
Next, fill in the white for the stars. Then paint a blue outline around each of the stars.
Next, fill in the whole blue section.
The rest is simple...paint the boards alternating red and white. I did a second coat on the stripes to make them stand out well. Let it dry and it's finished!
Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone has a great one!
