Hey y’all! This was an easy project that looks like a denim pocket! It’s fun and patriotic, just in time for some summer decor. Check out the video below to catch up on all the fun!

Let’s make it!
Here’s the sign I started out with. I kept the dowel and twine hanger to use in the final project.
I used one of these wood planks from Dollar Tree as a base for my bandana and stars, and one of my go-to paints: Debi’s Design Diary DIY paint, in White Swan.
I painted on two coats of the White Swan and used my heat tool to dry each coat.
I decided what width and length I needed for my stripes.
Then cut a tiny notch in the fabric and ripped several in the same width.
The shabby edges created by ripping the fabric make this project even better!
I layered my rows with the red burlap, then overlapped them with the fabric. I used hot glue to attach each piece.
Last, I trimmed the edges against the shape of the sign.
It was easy to attach a piece of the bandana to the wood plank using Mod Podge. I just trimmed the excess off once it was glued on. It’s going to look so good, y’all!
TIP: Use masking tape to hold on to small pieces!
I just lined up my stars on the masking tape, then painted them all. This was a super easy step and less messy than trying to hold each one while painting them.
Spoiler alert! See that tip on the end of my sign? Yep. That’s going away, y’all.
I picked each star off of the masking tape and placed them where I wanted them to go.
Hot glue, and bam! Stars!
The tip is gone! I cut it off with my aviation snips. I like it better without that pointy end.
I also hot glued the wood plank with the bandana and stars onto my “flag”. Oh, and those buttons? They looked cute lined up on the red burlap, but didn’t make the final cut. Maybe they will show up on a future project.
Making a hanger for this project was a breeze because I used most of the parts from the original sign.
I removed the gingham ribbon that connected the dowel to the sign, just by popping the brads off with my hands. The bandana fabric was just right for replacing the ribbon, so I just cut two strips and glued them on.
And here it is! All finished and ready to hang on the door, a wall or wherever it makes you happy!
