St. Patrick's Day DIY Flag

A few years ago, you wouldn't see my house decorated for anything but Christmas. I mean who has the money to buy all that stuff for every holiday? Most people, I have come to realize, accumulate their items over many years.

That is what I am doing with these crafts. Every year I want to go bigger and badder right along with the things I made last year. I don't know how hard that is going to be, but I am up for the challenge. This is my first time decorating for St. Patty's day and I have to say, I am LOVING the green.

These flags are made the same way, no matter what holiday, so if you have seen a flag in the past, you already know how to make this one! Get yourself a:

Trash Bag
Scissors
Tape
Decorations
Flag Stand



First, measure your mini flag pole, so you know how big (or small) to cut the trash bag to get started. Once you do that, lay out the bag and decided which side you want to cut. This matters, because you can choose to have a flat top to your flag or have them hanging on by the handles. I like both ways. You really have to do them both to figure out what you like.


After that, lay it out and tape it all together with clear tape or double sided tape on the inside. I find double sided tape works the best. I just used the last of mine so the next flag will be with clear tape. Use whatever you have on hand or whatever you feel works the best.


Once you have it all ready, you can find an image to use or just start decorating your flag in any way you want. I chose "Love" because I'm obsessed with that word in my decor and daily life. I also used decor tape to make the 4 leaf clover. You can use anything you like, but if you want to do it this way, I found my image on Google.


Once you have it all ready, take your flag and tape and take them outside and set them up on your flag pole. You may have to do some adjustments when you get out there. I had to stand ouutside coloring the green with the neighbors wathcing. It was..interesting, but worth it.


Well there you go, another decoration down. You can also hang your flags inside, if you don't have a flag pole or a tree to hang this from outside, or if you just plain don't have a yard. I know how that goes, make the best of what you have at all times.


Happy crafting everyone and thank you so much for reading my blog. Have an amazing day and if you have any comments and suggestions let me know below.
