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




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!

  9. You are the queen of cleverness! You’ll see this on pinterest many times. So clever and very neat especially for the beach.
