DIY Patriotic & Vintage Inspired American Flag for Independence Day

Independence Day is right around the corner and I have created this simple DIY for you to make your own vintage and rustic inspired American flag for you.

All you will need is:

  • striped red ticking fabric (from Walmart)
  • denim fabric
  • Clorox bleach pen
  • clothespins and string

First, cut your fabric to size and scale the denim to be close to proportionate.

This is my end result. Wash the fabric to fray the edges.

Next, whip out your bleach pen and paint stars on your denim. Be sure to protect the surface underneath.

The stars don’t have to be perfect. You can also do less stars as older style flags were made. I didn’t let it completely dry on mine so the stars didn’t wind up completely whited out since I’m going for a rustic look.

Sew together the denim and the ticking fabric. You could also use fabric glue if you don’t have a machine.

That’s it! Seriously, the easiest DIY in the history of mankind. Now put that baby on display by clipping it to some jute string.
