Patriotic Decorations: 4 Easy Flag Crafts

1. Wine Cork Coasters

First up are wine cork coasters. I love these and they are really quite easy. They’re also a craft you can use which is always a good idea.

Steps to Make It
  • Gather supplies: Foam Wreath | Yarn (3 colors) | Hot Glue | Scissors | Wood Stars | Spray Paint | Twine (optional) | Letters (optional)
  • Start with the blue yarn as it’s the biggest section (glue one end to the back and start wrapping!)
  • For mine, I wanted 13 “stripes” so I marked off the sections (approximately) for the red and white
  • Wrap the yarn according to your sections and how many stripes you want shown
  • Paint the stars white
  • Attach stars to blue portion with hot glue
  • Embellish! I used twine glued to the back with the letters attached to read “home sweet home”

3. Burlap Flag

4. Wine Bottle Centerpiece

I love wine so much I’m sharing two wine crafts today. This wine bottle takes very few supplies and can be made with any kind of ribbon. I used colored burlap but plain ribbon would work just fine.

Steps to Make It
  • Gather Materials: Wine Bottle | Burlap Ribbon | Hot Glue | Wood Stars
  • Start with the blue section. Fold the burlap ribbon in half and attach one end to the bottle with hot glue (tip: wired edge ribbon works best, I didn’t have this for the red and it was more difficult, I definitely recommend the ribbon with the wire edge).
  • Wrap pieces individually.
  • Repeat 6 times for the blue
  • Repeat wrapping the same way with the red and white (4 per color)
