Rustic Star Flag

I had some leftover scraps, so I decided to knock out a quick little project today. The project took me about 35 mins from start to finish. First I cut a star pattern out of some particle board, then I started to cut my pieces out from furring strips to make out the flag. I then torched all of the pieces, then glued and nailed them into place. Once nailed into place, I then lightly torched the white pieces of flag, to tone down and give a more warm rustic look to it. I then cleared the piece with some semi gloss, so the ash from being torched didnt smear. Once dry, I then drew on my stars and then dremeled them out. And there you have it! A quick and easy project, that looks great and doesnt cost much at all. :)
