Celebrate with festive flags

I absolutely LOVE this project because it helped me solve a drab problem.  It was time to celebrate, but the trees were still Winter-bare.  I couldn’t stand the look of twigs against the blue, Spring sky.  However, it was nothing that a quick trip to the thrift store couldn’t solve.  After a bin dive through curtains and sheets, Sam and I found some shades and fabrics that would do the trick.  After the fabric had a run in my washing machine, it was time to cozy up on the floor with Ash (my Bordercollie), and start tearing.

DSC_1552DSC_1549To keep things simple, I strung only 10 flags on each cotton string.  If you decide to give this project a shot, you have got to get your hand on some cardboard to wrap your strings around…it will make storage, travel, and hanging a cinch.

So, what do you think?  Festive?
