DIY Valentines Day Flag

This is the year of decor. I decided that this year, I'm going to explore DIYing for every major holiday. Nothing crazy of course, I'm not going all out for Groundhog's day or anything but I am going to spice the place up a bit for others.

Valentine's day is a super simple and a fun place to start. Some may say I have an unhealthy obsession with hearts and the word love, but, in my defense, they are the best. This is part one in my Valentines DIY series, ENJOY!


Now, what do you need to make your flag? Just like all the flags before, you don't need much, or you may need a lot, it depends on how you choose to decorate your flag. I used:

White Trash Bag
Outdoor Small Flag Stand
Markers
Decor Tape
Google Image
Scissors
Double Sided Tape


For this one, I actually cut the handle section off, instead of keeping it on like I normally do. You can cut either side, I was just using the handle for a later craft. Make sure you measure the size first, so you know how big to cut your flag. Remember, you have to affix it with tape so leave about 3-4 inches just in case.


After that, simply lay it flat and draw on your image. I got mine from Google, but you can do anything you want. You can also add words or phrases. Mine is staying up until the end of Feb. so the hearts were the easiest way to go.


Next I finished up with the tape. If you use tape, it really is harder than it looks to shape the hearts, but I just say that each one has character. You can do any decorating you want right here.


Once that is done, you are ready to take it outside and put it on the flag pole. I laid it down and put the double sided tape on, put it over the pole, and then expose the other side of the double sided tape and press together. Fasten at the bottom and you are all done.


You can have a lot of fun with this one, decorate it any way you like. As always you will see a new flag here next month, but you can always have fun making your own. Please tell me if you do and show me if you can add pictures. I have so much fun with these and I hope you do too! Let me know below. Thank you so much for reading everyone.
