Recycle - wooden block flag - Americana Decor

Hello July!

Summer is in full swing this week,
with it's hot, hazy & humid weather.

As much as I enjoy this season for
gardening, I do not enjoy the heat!
So, for the next two months you will
find me cowering in the air-conditioned

wooden block flag

If you're hiding in the cool air too, 
here's a quick & easy project to make!

A wooden block flag!

You'll need some wood scraps & paint!
I used 2x4's, a 4x4 block and Krylon spray paint.

Or have the kiddos join in 
with their brushes & paint!

These wooden scraps would have
gone into the kindling box for the 
winter if I hadn't rescued them!

I made extra white blocks 
to change it up a bit
throughout the seasons!

I have so much fun seeing the 
potential in a piece of "trash" 
and turning it into a treasure!

Do you re-purpose your trash??

  1. I absolutely love every little thing about this sweet project, Maria! You know I'm crazy about home decor for the holidays, so this really hits the spot with me. Plus, I'm a huge fan of creating art from recycled materials. So you get bonus point there! And how clever you are to make an extra block to change out for other holidays. This would work really well for Labor Day, too.

  2. A fun idea!! Super cute!! I recycle my coffee cans and store scraps of ribbon, glue dots, & flowers.
    Have a wonderful day my friend,

  3. Cute project!!! I don't do very much with wood, but that looks like a fun thing to have for my little granddaughter to play with. :) Thanks for sharing!!!
