Metal Flag

Making a simple metal flag is easy and inexpensive!


  • Metal (ours is made from a scrap piece of tin from my Grandpa’s farm)
  • Masking Tape
  • Spray Paint (red, white and blue!)
  • Piece(s) of Paper
  • Sponge
  • Scissors
  • White Craft Paint


  1. Spray the metal white.
  2. Cover up a square in the upper left corner with paper and then use masking tape to make stripes. Spray stripes red, let dry; peel off masking tape.
  3. Cover the stripes with paper/newspaper and spray the square blue, let dry.
  4. Cut out a star in a sponge. Using white craft paint, stamp stars on the blue!
  5. You’re finished!

We have the  metal flag hanging on our door for now!
