We are three sisters who make and create the things that we pin from Pinterest and then share our results with you! Some of the pins we make “Rock” and some of them are a “Flop”. Our blog helps us to actually make and enjoy what we find on Pinterest, but it also helps us stay in touch with each other. We all live in different parts of the United States. We love that we can work together even though we live far apart. Besides blogging and Pinterest we love spending time together as a family whenever possible. Between the three of us, we have 10 children, and 3 grandchildren! On to our post from Sherri today.

What has sticky red, white and blue fingers? Actually, I phrased that wrong. It should read, who has sticky red, white and blue fingers? The answer is, me! And I am not sorry. In the United States we will soon be celebrating the Fourth of July, a holiday I just love. I was looking for something fun to share in time for the celebration. When I saw this Kids American Flag Craft, inspired by A Pumpkin and a Princess via Ginger Snap Crafts, I couldn’t resist. It looked like it would be so easy to do with great looking results. Have you ever started a craft project and realized you were in over your head? That it was more than you were capable of? That it was not going to turn out remotely like the picture? Well, this isn’t ANYTHING like that! This craft is seriously simple. The kids will really be able to help, and they, and you, are going to be so proud of the results. Can’t wait to get started? Well then, in the words of the mother country, let’s crack on!

 

You will need:
jumbo craft sticks
glue
scissors
ribbon
paint brush or sponge
star stickers or white paper and paper star punch
red, white and blue craft paint

 

For each popsicle stick flag you will need 10 craft sticks. Cut three of the sticks down to 3 inches and two of the sticks down to 3 1/2 inches. The sticks are easy to cut with any household scissors.

Next, paint the three small sticks blue, three of the large sticks red, and two of the large sticks white. The remaining two 3 1/2 inch sticks do not need to be painted.Kids American Flag Craft painted craft sticks MadeFromPinterest
Glue the back of the red and white sticks to the two 3 1/2 inch sticks. Don’t worry they will not show.Kids American Flag Craft back glued MadeFromPinterest
Glue the three blue sticks into place. Add stickers or paper stars (I used a star punch with white card stock).

Next, glue the wooden flags to ribbon and embellish with tied ribbon in between each flag. You are ready to hang your flag banner.Kids American Flag Craft MadeFromPinterest
