I am in love with the clearance aisle of many stores, but I especially luvvvvv the 80% off aisle at Hobby Lobby!!! On a recent trip with my mom I spotted these cute little pink placemats...hmmmm $1.36....my wheels went to spinning and then I decided that I could make a new flag for my front flowerbed, so the little pink jewels went home with me!
I used my hot glue gun to glue the top edges together and then leaving enough of a "casing" for the flag pole to fit through, I hot glued the flags together (right underneath the beading in this case). Then I hot glued the sides and the bottom edges together. Next, I traced the big circles on and painted them using white acrylic craft paint. I then used my cricut to cut out my house numbers and traced them on with a pencil. Finally I outlined and painted the numbers in using my paint pen. Added the black outline to the white polka dots. I really like how it turned out! It sure beats the fuhaded flag that was out there and adds a certain pop of color to the front yard!
I will now be scouring all clearance aisles for more colors and adding new flags to my yard...so much more affordable than the 10-20 bucks I see most of them go for!
