I created this quick craft project to tie into a book discussion at work. But this so easy, anyone can do it and it's very quick as long as you are making a smaller size. I also think this would be awesome in an extra large size as well!
1. Gather your supplies all in one space so you are ready to go!
a. If you are using fabric, I would cut your strips at this time as well
2. Use blue pieces to represent the blue star part of the flag (I saw some online that used white beads throughout to represent the stars!) and alternate your red and white for the stripes.
3. Tie your strips on using the Larkshead Knot technique below. This is a great way to add your elements because you get two components out of one.
a. You can also tie them however you wish. Try tying little pieces together of different types/textures to give your flag more variety.
4. Create a piece for hanging. I did this by wrapping 3 pieces of twine around the one end, braiding it, and tying it off on the other side.
5. That's it! Feel free to add whatever types of elements you have lying around! Perfect decoration for the most rustic folks you know!
