I love the 4th of July, it’s one of the reasons why summer is my favorite season! This American Flag Wall Art is one of the fun crafts I’m making to celebrate this patriotic holiday.
Easy Patriotic Wall Art
For this project I used the super innovative Foamology self adhesive foam elements, and they totally rocked my socks off!
It’s so easy to wrap fabric around the foam and make a beautiful art piece in no time!
How To Make Patriotic Wall Art
(4) 12×12 Foamology self adhesive squares
Scissors (use sharp precise cutting scissors like Fiskars)
For this project I went with a fun blue and stars pattern on burlap, and a large red gingham for a twist on the traditional stripes.
1/2 yard for the stars, 1 1/4 yard for the stripes.
Line the Foamology square in the center of the fabric, making sure there is enough excess material for tucking. Remove the backing and stick the square on to the fabric.
Turn the square over and tuck the excess into the grid like slits on the back of the foam square. Fold the ends like you would gift wrap, pull it taught and tuck it in.
Set the ‘stars’ square, aside. Make the ‘stripes’ squares, be sure to line up the stripes. If you use large gingham print like I did, it can be tricky so carefully lay all the squares out on a table to be sure everything is aligned at the ends.
For hanging I simply slipped 4 brad nails into the slits on the back of each Foamology square. They are so light, even a small nail can keep them in place!
How easy was that? Make your own American Flag, some fun wall art for your kid’s room, or something unique to celebrate the World Cup!
There are so many possibilities, check out more ideas on the Foamology website!
