Gather all your supplies. I already had lots of burlap laying around, along with lots of tea and twine. The only thing I needed were some small flags on a stick.

Remove the flags from the sticks and place in a hot pan of strong tea to make them look old. As a disclosure, these are not considered real flags. They are only 4×6 inches and were on a plastic stick and sold in the decorating section of the store for parties and such.

The photo doesn’t show it, but there was some aging with the tea on the whites of the flags. I cut enough burlap for each flag and make it just a bit larger than the flag. I purposely unraveled the edged and sprayed the burlap with starch. I used Tacky Glue to glue the flags to the burlap. I applied the glue to the back of each flag and using paper towels, I patted them to the burlap.  I had an old plastic tablecloth underneath them for glue that was sure to seep through. Then I folded the top of the burlap over 1 inch and glued it after I had it around the twine.

I made small knots on the ends of each twine to secure to our cottage. If you are hanging your flag banner vertically, as I did above, make sure the stars are to the observers left, which these are.
