The Dose of DIY group has put together some great Flag ideas for you this month by using reclaimed wood/fabrics/and/or metal. Creating a patriotic Flag project is something that can be used for Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the Fourth of July. (Or just to show our American pride!)
I don't usually do holiday themes very well and came up with nothing to do. But I did have a few sleds hanging around from each of my sons' little boy days. This one belonged to my oldest who is now in his early 30's. So it's really weathered and ready for a repurpose.
I sanded the wood and most of the rusty metal to clean it up.
Then stained and painted it, followed by two coats of polyurethane.
Finally, hung up the sled and placed plants into the holders.
Now it's nostalgic, patriotic, and functional!
Thank you for visiting our monthly Dose of DIY! Be sure to come back each month for more inspiration!
