Washi Flag & Patriotic Display

Washi tape flag and patriotic display for Independence Day

Folks, I am definitely proud to be an American.  Sure this country has its share of problems but we also have a lot of freedoms that I’m thankful for!   While I love to travel and visit other places, I can’t imagine living anywhere else but the good old USA.

When I got an awesome deal on some washi tape from Pick Your Plum a couple weeks ago, I knew right away that I wanted to make flag art with it.  It was so simple!  Here’s how I did it.


  • 8×10 art canvas
  • Washi tape of your choice
  • Scissors

First I applied my star tape to the upper left section.  Then I rotated the other strips on the remainder of the canvas.  Finally, I applied the star tape along the outer edge.  One of the reasons I like working with washi tape is that it’s so forgiving – if you mess up, just pull it up and reapply!

Probably the easiest craft I’ve done all year, and it looks so festive with the other patriotic decor on my hutch!

I hope all of my U.S. friends have a fabulous time celebrating our nation’s independence!

    I saw the title of your blog on a comment you left on someone’s post. Lately, I am a girl (woman) in the garage. I have been organizing my creative space and working on projects at the same time. By next week, my garage will be the best place to be creative.

    Happy Creating
