Are you looking for a super easy and cheap folk art craft to do with your kiddos? Look no further than your local hardware store. Paint stir sticks are cheap and can be used to make so many cute things.
In the picture below, you will see everything needed to make a paint stick flag:
Simply glue your paint sticks together like this: lay two paint stir sticks vertically and glue the remaining sticks horizontally so that they cross the vertical sticks. I used hot glue for this, but craft glue may hold better.
Once the glue is dry, paint your sticks to look like an American flag. I used white star stickers, but if you’d prefer, you could paint or draw your stars.
So there you have it- a folk art inspired wood stick flag!
