DIY Fabric Flower FlagPosted on Jun 29, 2017 6:59:00 PM by Grace Tolman
I love flowers in the spring and summer, which is my go-to inspiration for any home décor I make during this season. Creating my own decorative flag was made easy with Glue Dots® Advanced Strength adhesive.
Made By: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes
Size: Height 19" x Length 7 1/3” x Width ½"
Here's what you need:
- Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Dispenser or Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Double-Sided Sheets
- Fabric- Canvas, Hobby Lobby
- Flowers- Maya Road, Inspired By Stamping, We R Memory Keepers
- Ribbons- Recollections, The Ribbon Boutique
- 1/16" Dowel
- Paint brush
- DecoArt's Americana Paint colors: Dragon Fruit, Poodleskirt Pink, Ballerina, and Razzle Berry
- Sewing machine
Here's what you do:
Cut a 12" x 7 1/3” piece of canvas fabric.
Fold on the center and cut a triangle on one side to create the flag end.
Add a simple straight stitch on the edge of the fabric. This will ensure that the fabric won’t fray from use later on.
With the four varying hues of pink and the stencil, create an ombre design on the canvas. Set aside to dry.
Adhere the flowers and ribbons on the dried canvas using Glue Dots Advanced Strength adhesive.
Trim the excess ribbons from the edge of the flag.
Glue Dots Advanced Strength adhesive to the back side of the top edge of the flag. Fold the canvas over and around the dowel and press firmly against the adhesive to ensure a strong, secure bond.
Add some more ribbon to the dowel so you can hang your flag.
iDon't forget to save it for later!

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
