Create this DIY Patriotic Ribbon Flag with paint sticks and ribbon. This is a unique and easy project that is both fun and simple to make. Hang it up anywhere to show your patriotic spirit.
Memorial Day and Fourth of July are two great holidays to show off your patriotic spirit. I recently shared this easy and simple to do project on my Facebook page and love the way it came out.

Supplies You Will Need to Make This Craft:
- 2 paint sticks – you can use small ones or big ones.
- Wood Stain – this is one of my favorites
- Ribbons of your choice in reds and whites – I like a variety in skinny and medium width ribbons. Anything wider than 1/2 inch might be too wide. You can decide. I also used different shades of white.
- Navy Blue Fabric square for the stars of the flag. My ribbon came from Walmart and was Navy with white stars – so it was perfect for this project.
- Twine or string for hanging
- Hot glue and a glue gun
Once you have all the materials you will need to set up an area to create. The dining room table or your craft table is a great place. I made this in front of my Dreambox cabinet as it has all my supplies within the craft storage cabinet at an arms reach.
