I am always trying to make or find something unusual for my grandson who has Aspberger's. Since he is now 19, it has gotten more difficult. He likes cars and soon will be going to an autotech school. So, digging through my packrat room, I found a car part (transmission pan?), an old lamp, and a set of old license plates. A little twisting, painting, and a splatter shield from Dollar Tree, here is the result.

I had some wood scraps I had laying around and some old license plates and some left over paint.
Make an American flag from an old car tag. Approximate Time: 30 minutes Supplies: old car tag (license plate) spray paint (red or white) acrylic paint sealer star stencil wire Instructions: Spray paint the tag (license plate) using either red or white. That way you will only have to paint one set of stripes. Let dry. Paint on your blue background for stars, let dry. Paint on your other colored stripes, let dry. Use your star stencil to paint on the stars. You can free hand if you like or don't have a stencil. When the stars are dry paint with glitter paint. When completely dry, seal with acrylic sealer and let dry. Put wire in holes at top of tag. Hang and enjoy. Great for the upcoming 4th.
