Flag Garland for a Boy’s Room

by Wendy Copley on March 24, 2008

Over the past month, I’ve embarked on a couple of craft projects to spruce up Wyatt’s room and keep it a little bit better organized. We’ve got a few really nicely framed cowboy prints that Aunt Erin and Uncle Bon-Bon gave him on one wall of his room, but the other walls are a bit bare. I want Wyatt’s room to be a cheerful place that he likes to play in, so I decided to make this flag garland to hang on one of the bare walls.

It was very simple. First, I cut a nice long piece of string. I didn’t measure it, I just eyeballed it. Next, I cut a bunch of flags out of scrapbook paper. I wanted red so the garland would be bright and match the rest of his room, so I just pulled a bunch of sheets with red in them. Next I cut the individual flags. You can probably figure out how to do this on your own, but if you can’t quite get it, Rookie Moms has a basic tutorial here. Once I had all the flags cut, I folded the flap over, applied glue and then glued the sheets over the string.

Here are a couple of close-ups of the flags:

And here it is hanging up in Wyatt’s room. We made a pink garland too because Wyatt decided he liked pink better than the red, so now we have one of each!
