DIY Ribbon Flag

Making a flag out of ribbons has been on my list for a long time.  I even have a board on Pinterest for inspiration.  So even though this is not an original project at all, here is how I made mine.

What you will need: 

Canvas – I cut mine 18″ x 30″

Denim – from old jeans

Ribbon: red and white or beige

Rod of some sort (I used a thin bamboo stick for tying up gardens plants)


Sewing machine

Fold the top of the canvas about 2-3″ to make a casing.  Line up all your ribbons the way you want them and pin them.  Stitch on your sewing machine to secure them.

Cut strips of denim to make the blue part of your flag.  Stitch on your sewing machine.  Then using a white paint and a star cookie cutter, dip the cookie cutter in the white paint and stamp all over the denim.

Insert the rod through your casing and use rope to make a hanger.
