Upcycle old Pallets into fabulous patriotic outdoor home decor!
We live in a military town and keep this up year round!  I love it!  And it makes it easy to find my house!

Step 1: Assemble the structure

You'll need a few old pallets.  They are pretty easy to find free!  You can even ask at Lowe's or Home Depot and they will usually give you some--or check craigslist--or the neighbors trash!  :)

There are lots of pallet projects that I have seen...but they require so much work and sanding in order to make the wood worth using indoors.  (I'd rather just go buy better wood...sorry!)

But this outdoor flag is perfect!  It's rough, and basically pallet shape!

You'll need to disassemble your pallets.

You'll need 13 strips for the front and 4 for the bracers on the back. (as pictured)

You can use nails to secure them or staples!  No sanding required!

I like this very much. 1 re-cycle a pallet. 2 artistic. 3 Original and unique. Well Done

Thank you! I love the bold American statement too! :) Of course I have been tempted to do a union jack one as well! :)

Painting, and then using a stain - what a good idea!
