Fearless Friday, Summer Sand Dollar Flag

Not much time for painting this week because I have been hauling tableware, baking cakes, harvesting pineapples, making signs & menus,

lounging in the South Pacific

 

 

I also hung around Bloody Mary’s Bali Ha’i Bar

 

 

But!

I did have time to put together a summer flag for Memorial Day

 

 

I started with a rustic wooden palette/sign

 

 

Red, white & blue acrylic paint, and sand dollars

 

 

Look closely, the sand dollars are actually stars

 

 

Next some red stripes in a wavy stroke

 

 

The texture of this wood is so rough that straight stripes and solid color is impossible so I decided just to embrace that and make my flag intentionally look weathered

White stripes were added in between the red

 

 

This was a super quick project

 

 

The wooden flag is great for decorating the entry, heavy enough not to blow around

 

 

A festive patriotic welcome!

 

 

Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!

    Oh, my goodness, I love this! And of course, I have sanddollars sitting around. Some I found myself at Alligator Point back when I was in middle school! We came upon a bed of them and I scooped them up by the handfuls and have saved them all these years!
