For my red, white, and blue themed idea, I created a patriotic garden flag, perfect for a flower bed, garden, or front yard!

To make your own, you’ll need:

burlap

red, white, and blue fabric

heat & bond

Cricut Explore™

star ornaments

garden flag holder {found at Lowe’s}

To start, I used my Cricut Explore to cut blue fabric with the words “Land of the Free”.  To cut fabric using the Cricut Explore, you simply iron on Heavy Duty Heat & Bond to the wrong side of the fabric, stick the fabric onto a 12 x 12 mat {Heat & Bond side to the mat}, and make your cuts.  It’s easy as can be and cuts like a dream!

To attach the letters to my burlap flag, I simply peeled the Heat & Bond paper and placed a scrap piece of fabric over the letters before ironing.

I created a loop at the top of the flag to slide onto the flag holder and secured it with hot glue.  I also added scraps of red, white, and blue fabric and some star ornaments before hanging it outside.
