Flag themed decorations are a great way to show patriotism. This includes a Dollar Tree antique flag. My antique flag is the perfect center piece for all my patriotic decor.

FIRSTLY, LETS GET YOU A SUPPLY LIST:
- Flag Bandana (Dollar Tree)
- Additional Bandanas (Dollar Tree)
- Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
- Chalk Paint (Brown)
- Wood Stick (Dollar Tree)
- Spray Bottle
- Wood Stain
- Hot Glue Gun
SECONDLY, LETS GET INTO MAKING THE CRAFT:
I started this craft by taking my spray bottle and filling it with a small amount of brown paint and water. I then took my spray bottle and began thoroughly spraying the bandana. It’s really important to saturate the flag for that antique look. Afterwords, I take my wood stain and used it on my yard stick to make it a little darker in shade. Once the stick was dry I glued it to the top of the flag.
THIRDLY, LETS PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THis dollar tree antique flag:
As seen in the video, I took a few other bandanas and ribbon that I purchased from Dollar Tree and used scrap pieces to tie around the ends of the stick. I also used a piece of a bandana to create a hanger at the top of the flag. Finally, I take lace ribbon and glue a piece across the top of the flag. This step really gives it an antique look in my opinion.
