Easy Patriotic Decor – Use a Pallet

Pallets and pallet crafts are popping up literally everywhere. I used a pallet in good condition to make this easy patriotic decor replica American flag. It worked up easily with craft paint. The flag has sat out in the weather now for a few years on our farmyard. The weathering only makes it better. Read more about the painting project here.
