Window Frame Wood Flag

Window Frame Wood Flag | A Diamond in the Stuff

It’s slowly creeping towards the 4th of July and even though I’ve been a bit MIA lately (on va-ca in Hawaii), I just had to share one last patriotic project! I have fallen in love with using old windows as frames for beautiful artwork. Whether it be a beautiful quote or image, if I’m throwing an old window around it I’m happy. So of course this time of year had me anxious to make a Window Frame Wood Flag.

There are many steps to creating this window flag art, so to make it as simple as possible I’m going to break it down with steps. Of course if you have any questions about any step, just let me know!

Got that? Ok, now that you have your flag art created. All you need is an old window frame. I grabbed this one out of my pile, cleaned it up, and used a clear sealing over the chippy paint. I used E6000 glue to attach the wood flag to the old window and let dry.

I think the old chippy window frame made the perfect start to this project. The distressed and aged wood flag is the perfect match.

Of course I love the chippy old window. That is just something that can not be duplicated. Natural weathering is often very imperfect but priceless.

It only seemed right to do this beautiful old window justice by adding beautiful old glory to it. I’m glad that I decided to add the dark wax to it, the bright new paint just didn’t go with the old window. Once I aged the flag it looked like it was meant to go together!

I’m pretty sure I will always be a sucker for a good red, white, and blue project. This one has rocketed to the top of my list. It’s just beautiful.

What do you link of my Window Frame Wood Flag?

Disclaimer: I know this flag doesn’t have the correct amount of stripes and stars as it’s just for decorative purposes. I was creating a representation of the flag and not an actual flag. {wink}

Linking up to these great link parties!!!
