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 the children of my own parents! 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 a Back to School Garden Flag, which you may remember from the other day. Here’s a picture 🙂
In that flag tutorial post, I showed you how I made the flag but not the post! So today I’m going to show you exactly how I built the most easy DIY wood working project ever!
For most of this wooden flag holder, I used scrap pieces of wood I had laying around the garage.
- 1 – 4×4 – I used a 4×4 pressure treated post, which is great because I anchored it into the ground. Treated wood is the type of wood you use for exterior and ground projects
- 1 – 2×4 – this was a scrap piece of wood
- 1 – 2×6 – another scrap piece of wood
- 1 – craft finial – I purchased these at Lowe’s in the lumber section. However, I’ve had a hard time finding them since, so Amazon is your best bet
In the image below, I show the sizes I cut each piece of wood. If I hadn’t of used a scrap piece of 4×4 that was already cut to 4 feet in length, I would have kept it longer (around 5-6 feet) to allow for the distance I needed to bury it into the ground for anchoring.
How To Build A Wooden Garden Flag Holder
- STEP 1
- STEP 2
- STEP 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
- STEP 4
Twist in craft finial
- STEP 5
- STEP 6
Attach flag bracket (I bought THIS ONE from Amazon)
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.
