DIY scrap fabric American flag backdrop for the Fourth of July

Fourth of July is around the corner and this flag is the perfect decor or photo backdrop for your holiday party! I’m not into seewing, so I didn’t have the scrap fabric around, but it still was a suuuuper easy and super quick project! Like it took me only 20 minutes to cut and tie all the red and white stripes. And I just love the way it turned out!

No-sew, scrap fabric, American flag backdrop

What you need:

red and white fabric for strips, blue fabric for a square, white paint, a potato, a stick

If you are a sewer and have scrap fabric then this project could potentially be completely free! Score! Am I right?! I am not into sewing, so I set out to my local craft store to find the perfect patterns. If I would have stuck with just simple red and white fabric, it would have been super cute and only $10. Depending on how many patterns and textures you want to add to the mix, it goes up from there. For the blue portion of the flag, I used an old shirt that I had just thrown away! I couldn’t cut it down to a perfect square, but it worked out well. And I grabbed a large stick out of our back yard!

Directions:

1. Cut your red and white fabric into long skinny strips. (7 red stripes and 6 white stripes)

2. Tie strips to a large stick or pole.

3. Cut out a blue square.

4. For the stars, use a potato stamp. Cut potato in half and with a knife, cut out the shape of a star. Dip the stamp in paint, and then stamp the star onto the blue fabric.

5. Tie two corners of the blue fabric onto the stick.

6. Tie two ends of a string of hemp to the stick to allow it to hang.
