June Make and Take {2×4 Flag Blocks}

As I mentioned, last week I hosted a craft make and take at my house. My goal was to host a craft night once a month, that doesn’t always work out but I try. I was determined to host one in June though, I’ve been dying to make a 2×4 Flag for sometime.
This make and take was by far my largest class! I had nearly 30 ladies invade my house to get crafty! It’s really amazing how as the attendance goes up so does the fun!
Look at all that red, white, and blue goodness!!! Not to mention all those ladies working away and having a great time doing it!!!
So if you weren’t able to attend the class but you would like to know how we made them….stay tuned for a tutorial…..
2×4 Wood (2 – 7in pieces 4 – 3.5in pieces)
Red, white, and blue craft paint
Star (I used white vinyl)
Satin Ribbon
First things first, it’s time to paint the 2×4’s. It may take a couple coats of the craft paint to fully cover the blocks, especially the white.
Once all of the blocks are dry it’s time to distress. This step is optional, I happen to dig the distressed look so I stuck with it. I just used a sanding block to hit all the edges.
I attached the vinyl star to one of the blue blocks. Then I added some white satin ribbon around the blocks, tied in a bow.
I am so thrilled that I was finally able to make these super cute 2×4 Flags and I think everyone else was too.
Check out all of those beautiful ladies and their beautiful finished projects!!! Some stuck to just paint and some played with some scrapbook paper and decoupage. Love the creativity!!! I’m glad I snapped this picture when I did, some ladies had already left but I was able to get most of them in the photo.
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
