Hello again! I’m Lorene, and I’m back to share another fun British-y project with you. In addition to feeding Debra’s Doctor Who obsession (a bandwagon that I have very lovingly also jumped on!) I also love feeding her British mania. And you can’t get much more British than the flag, the lovely Union Jack!
Add the crazy appeal of the flag with the fact that I love inexpensive projects and materials like paint stir sticks, and you have today’s project: a paint stick union jack wall hanging. Free as long as you paint on hand and don’t mind picking up a few paint stir sticks on every hardware store trip 🙂
How to Paint a Union Jack on a Paint Stick Plaque
- paint stir sticks — I used 9 of the shorter ones (about 12″ long) to get the right approximate dimensions of the flag, plus 2 more for the supports on the back to hold it together
- paint — red, white/cream, dark blue
- glue — I used wood glue
- clamps, like clothespins and binder clips, to hold the paint sticks while the glue dries
- painter’s tape (or masking or even washi tape)
