Cabinet Door Flag

In my thrifting I came across a few cabinet doors, and I just had the urge to make one into a flag.  See what you think.



What you will need:
Cabinet door
Small strips of wood
Paint
Sandpaper
Faux Glaze

First I painted and antiqued the frame part of the cabinet using gray paint.  There is a tutorial HERE on how to do this.



I then painted the strips and antiqued them a bit also.  There is a tutorial HERE


Then I assembled the flag.



Then it was time to do the stars.



First I made a pattern for the sides of the star, traced them and cut them out of script scrapbook paper.



Then, I used some Modge Podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the star.


Lastly, I glued the stars on the flag.

I love flag decor!






Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. That is one very nice looking flag on your cupboard door.. Great idea making flag more portable. The stars look perfect also.
    Do you enjoy making patriotic decorations, do you use them on porch and/or inside home? Usually I like to do both but this year going on vacation on 6/22 and won't be home til 4th. of July or later.
    Lucky you coming across cabinet doors, did you have to buy them? Where we live people don't give things away, have to pay. Usually get them at Habitat and they've raised prices for them depending on size. Last year were priced at $2.00 every one. Love using doors for signs, makes it easier and quicker with borders and middle areas are smooth.
    Have great weekend
