DIY Flag Pole

We have been busy busy lately with all of the activities of summer...lots of swimming,  my girls both had swimming lessons every day for two weeks they loved it and my oldest is swimming like a little fish very well spent!  Even with all the summer craziness I have managed to get a few projects done like a little boy summer hat and a handle bar bag for my girl's bikes...  first the crafty man has a  project he came up with for flag day

He has been busy with work and trying to get started on building a new home for us but he still managed to show some pride for this great country that we are blessed to live in.

All you need is a about a 9' length of pvc pipe (we got ours for 7.00) a drill, scrap piece of pipe and some zip ties....we are still looking for the perfect gold ball or eagle to put on the top. Lay out your flag on the pvc pipe and mark where your holes need to be and drill, attach flag with zip ties, hammer pipe into the ground and slide pvc pipe over. 

 If you  don't have time to put up a  flag in your yard you can easily sport some flag nails in no time at all... my girls and their cousins had a great time!

Have a great Fourth of July!

If you're interested in another patriotic project, check out my Flag Blocks from last year they are quick and easy and turn out really cute.
