I’m sorry I didn’t get this posted yesterday, on the normal day I do Whatcha Craftin’ posts, but it was kind of a last minute project!! I didn’t even start the craft until about 11:00pm on Tuesday night and I had to wait for the paint to dry before finishing it. Also, I’ve realized how much time it takes to do everything I need to with all the boys at home, so it really doesn’t leave much time for crafting or blogging. It’s sad, but true.
I thought it would be fun to make up some popsicle stick flags I saw on pinterest, where else? 🙂 I was so excited about the project I got started right away… at 11:00 at night! lol I love how the flag turned out and it works for what I needed.
First I painted all my popsicle sticks the colors I wanted. I should’ve cut the blue ones down before painting them, but I didn’t. If you decide to do this, cut the popsicle stick that are going to be blue to half the size. I just punched out little stars from white cardstock. I happened to have a little punch with a star on it I bought SO many years ago. I think this is about the second time I’ve used it! LOL Then I just hot glued the stars onto the blue part of the flag.
I put the flag in a jar I made (you’ll be getting that post/tutorial tomorrow, so look forward to that! 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!) and put it on my holiday table I have in the living room upstairs.
I love how it turned out. I might make more of them, maybe not. I think it looks good with just the one. The best thing about this project? It took about 15 minutes to paint and then glue it all together. Easy Peasy!! PLUS, you could totally do this with your kids! I considered that, but realized I have too much on my plate already! LOL Throw in some paint and a toddler and I wouldn’t be having too much fun with this project! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a great Thursday!! 🙂

How cute is this? I love it! And I know what you mean about not being able to craft or blog as much since your boys have been home from school. Story of my life. And it makes me sad. 🙁 Plus my dad hired me to do the weeding at his office, so I am one busy woman.
