If you saw my post Americana Wood Blocks last week, I promised another project using these 2-inch wood blocks. Well…this is it! This Cute Farmhouse Wood Block “Flag” is super easy to make and it will add a little fun to your 4th of July decor!

Here’s what you’ll need…
- (6) 2-inch wood blocks (I used these)
- Red, White, Blue, and Brown acrylic paint (This is a great set of paints if you want to add to your craft supplies)
- Natural jute twine
- E6000 clear adhesive
- Chip brushes to paint your blocks
- 3/4-inch round sponge brush (sometimes called a pouncer)
To make your flag, paint 2 blocks red, 2 blocks white, and 2 blocks blue. I painted 2 coats on each block. Once they are dry, using white paint with the round sponge brush, dab circles onto 2 sides of each blue block like in the picture below. Once the white circles are completely dry, dry brush all 6 blocks with brown paint to give them a vintage look.
Using E6000 clear adhesive, glue the blue blocks together, one on top of the other. Glue each red block on top of each white block. Let the adhesive dry. Wrap twine around the top blue block and tie in a knot, trimming the ends. Glue the blocks together as in the picture below and let dry.
And here it is! Isn’t it cute?
This would be a fun project to make with the kids on a rainy Summer afternoon! And it’s a great little decoration to leave out all Summer. 🇺🇸
