4th of July Crafts: How To Ideas
American Flag On Corrugated Metal
This is easily one of my favorite 4th of July crafts on the list purely because it is one of the easiest things I have ever made! All you need is a corrugated metal sheet, some painters tape, and some spray paint. And the best part about this project is that it is easy to customize to fit just about any space.
Here’s how to make it:
Step One: Use a saw to cut your corrugated metal into the size of your choosing. Make sure one side is longer than the other so it looks like a flag.
Step Two: Use your painter’s tape to tape the flag lines on your metal sheet. You are creating a template here, so you will want to make sure that you like where your lines end up.
Step Three: After you have confirmed that your lines are where you want them, break out your paint (it can be spray paint, or otherwise) and paint your flag. Let fully dry.
Step Four: When fully dried, use a drill to create holes for hanging in your metal sheet. Now, all that’s left is to find a place to hang it!
