My Man is getting tired of all the pallets I am collecting. I have good intentions for them, but they are just laying in the yard waiting for me to turn my good intentions into something.
I did turn one of my good intentions into something. A Flag Pallet for the front porch.
- Pallet (a friend gets mine for me. Try a grocery store)
- Red, white and blue paint I used the small acrylic paint found in the craft section of Wal mart.
- Paint brush
- Star cookie cutter
Putting It All Together
My pallet had 7 boards. Most do. I eyeballed where I thought the blue should go and drew lines of the top 3 boards as a guide.
Paint the top, third, fifth and seventh boards red.
Paint the second, fourth and sixth boards white.
Paint the section your marked off blue. Actually, I would paint this first so it has time to dry and you can paint the white stripes and stars without having to wait.
Use a star cookie cutter to trace the stars. I used a white colored pencil for this. Put as many stars as you like in what pattern you like. I just happened to get 13 stars. Paint them white.
Let it dry and put it where you want it. I left it where I painted it.
If your kids help you, this is a great time to talk about US history and the Christian principles our country was founded on.
