Paint Stick Flag

Hey, hey, hey!
 It's the last week of June and I've got one of the simplest 4th of July crafts you can make in time for the holiday. I love how patriotic it is!

Supplies needed:
-7 paint sticks
-4 Popsicle sticks
-Hot glue gun
-red, white, and blue paint
-masking tape
-paint brush

Start by laying out your paint sticks.
Use masking tape to tape off the top three sticks so you don't get red or white paint where the blue paint will go.
Paint the sticks red and white and paint the star white (the star should not be on the flag when you paint it). Remove the tape and paint the blue area.
Once all of the paint has dried, turn the painted sticks over and space them out evenly. Hot glue the Popsicle sticks so that all of the paint sticks are being held by at least two of them.
Then hot glue the star to the front.
Drill two holes in the top stick for the wire that is used to hang it. You can curl the wire with a pliers or a metal stick.

Have fun crafting! Let me know if you have any questions or craft tutorials you would like to see!
