~Old Glory~

I made this door hanger to give to dear friends of ours on the 4th of July. My husband and I spent the weekend at their lake home in Kentucky and a flag seemed to be the perfect hostess gift for the occasion. 

It is made from burlap, but it has the appearance of canvas.  The burlap that I used was dark brown in color, so I had to use LOTS of paint to get full coverage. 

My friend had a metal front door with stained glass, so nailing in a nail to hang the flag was not an option.  Luckily, I had taken a suction hook with me.  It worked out perfectly.  I just love it when a plan comes together!

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
