Memorial Day is coming up and it’s a great time to hang up some DIY Americana decor to remind you and your family of the great sacrifice so many have given while in the service of the United States military. With tons of ways to customize, this stars and stripes wall hanging can be made to match any home or decor!
- Extra Large Unfinished Wooden Tags
- 6 inch Wide Burlap Ribbon
- Americana Dark Chocolate Brown Gloss Enamels Craft Paint
- Double Sided Hercules Tape
- USA Flag Barn Stars
- Hot Temp Glue Gun
Step One. Dilute the brown paint with a few drops of water to create a stain. Apply even strokes of paint to the wood tag with a paintbrush and allow to dry.
Step Two. Remove the jute string from the top of the wood tag and save for later. Mark the width of the burlap ribbon on the wood tag and apply two strips of double-sided tape the entire length, with the ends folded over to the back. Stick burlap ribbon in place. Fold over the ends to the back and stick in place with more double-sided tape.
I love how this DIY Americana decor is such a beautiful way to remind family and guests of the real reason we celebrate Memorial Day. To the men and women who have died while serving our country, you will never be forgotten!
