It’s NATIONAL CRAFT MONTH y’all! Did you know? Honestly every month is craft month around here…..but this is NATIONAL craft month!
I am sharing my Nautical Pallet Flags today as part of Jo-ann Fabric and Craft Stores® National Craft Month campaign. One of the hot trends this Spring is all things Nautical. And I have to say, I am falling for it! Like hook, line, and sinker ; )
Nautical Pallet Flags
-Rustic Pallet 11×11
-Americana craft paint
I wanted to transform my wood pallets into nautical flags replicas. So I did some searching around and found some images of flags that I liked. I decided to stick with basic Americana colors for my flags.
All three pallets got started with a coat of white craft paint. It acted as a “primer” and an easy way to paint on the white areas.
Then it was time to tape off the pallets and create the actual flag designs. By the way, I love this painters tape!!! I used the blue and red craft paint to finish off the pallet flags. I tried to pick flags that would be easily replicated onto the pallets.
I wanted the flags to look old and weathered so I busted out the sanding block and got to work. I gave all the pallets a really good sanding.
I did end up spraying the pallets with some clear spray paint I had on hand to protect them. They were super easy to hang with the cross pieces of wood on the back of the pallets. You could add a picture hanger to it or just rest it on a couple nails.
I made three pallet flags because I love decorating in threes, just feels right. It also gave me the opportunity to make three different kinds of flags, each one different but coordinated.
I absolutely love these pre-made pallet signs! Jo-Ann stores has a variety of them now, in different sizes and shapes. They make doing a project like this a breeze! I have a ton of ideas for these, there are endless options!
Jo-Ann makes Spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a Spring crafting inspiration website. Seriously they have made it so easy for you! crafting inspiration to get you going and a coupon to make it happen!!!
I think these Nautical Pallet Flags would make great decorations to transition from Spring to Summer as well.
