Hey Guys!!

Soooo….school started yesterday! Preschool that is. I spent all of Labor Day weekend crying 🙁 ha! Yes, I am “that” mom. I am just so sad at how fast my kids are growing up! Seriously, they are going to be graduating high school like tomorrow! Going off to college a million miles away from home, getting married and moving two million miles away from home (of course I do not know anyone who would be this cruel to their parents…except the parents of my children! Lover Boy and I are doomed! Karma is going to suck!)

Anywho…because I’m an avid crafter and just have to be busy all of the time, I made THIS FLAG, which you may remember from the other day:

In that post I showed you how I made the flag but not the post! So today I’m going to tell you what I did:

1) Using a drill and wood screws (preferably self tapping screws), screw the 6×6 to the top of the 4×4 post

2) Using a drill (my drill of choice) and wood screws,  screw the 4×4 to the top of the 6×6

3) Using a drill bit drill a hole in the top of the 4×4 according to the size of the screw in your finial

4) Twist in craft finial

5) Stain or paint – I stained mine using Minwax Dark Walnut

6) Attach flag bracket (I bought THIS ONE from Amazon)

7) Using a post hole digger or a shovel dig a hole deep enough to anchor the post, fill in around and enjoy!


I love the way it turned out!! My kids posed for pictures by it for their first day of school!

My flag holder was inspired by a planter post that the girls at Shanty-2-Chic created.
