Recycle an old window shutter into a painted flag decoration for the Fourth of July and other patriotic summer holidays. This project is quick to create and because it is painted in a primitive style, mistakes and imperfections add to the finished result. To make this craft even more frugal, I used left over house paints that I had picked up for pennies at yard sales. You could substitute house paint with acrylic craft paints.
Approximate Time: 2 to 3 hours, including drying time

I love this project. I have a list I keep in my pocketbook of things to look for at yard sales and such. Thanks for clear pictured directions and sharing this project.
