Today I am sharing with you how to make easy patriotic art with fabric scraps. Because the flag looks great outside, but we shouldn’t neglect the interior of our homes.
What I Used:
- wire rack left over from fridge
- various fabric pieces cut into strips
- needle and thread
- hot glue (optional)
The How To:
I just folded the strips any which way and then weaved them through the wire, like you see below. I then tucked the loose ends behind the wire. Or you can also hot glue them behind.
Looks good right?
Actually I made a horrible mistake (I guess those perfect houses really went over the budget) and added all that white where there should have been blue.

At this point I thought I could either do the whole thing in blue and then add bits of white for the stars. Or I could cheat and use one of these fabrics which contain both colors.
I got my daughter to decide for me, the one of the love for all things blue…
This way it looks like there are random white spots. You know, a bit like the fifty stars.
I may have the right number of stripes but the bottom full stripes should have been two less.
Oh well, turns out that TV show was way too good to stop in order to count the stripes.
Anyway, if you don’t mind, then I won’t tell!
For my non-American friends, the flag has 13 stripes which represent the 13 colonies that declared independence from England, and the 50 stars represent the 50 states.
It really does look good next to the white chair!
I hope you have enjoyed my easy patriotic art with fabric scraps. Do you decorate the inside of your home for the Fourth of July or just the outside?
