DIY Old wood Texas Flag

I had a old grey piece of wood on the side of the house.  I turned it into a couple patriotic pieces. We love Texas in our house.  We lived in Texas for a few years so I made a the state flag.  It is really simple.
You will need 2 pieces of old wood cut to 20"
Red White and Blue craft paint
 A paint brush good for dry brush painting
Wood glue
Large clamp
Painters tape
Star printed and cut out from card stalk

My two pieces of 20" wood

Glue the pieces together and then clamp them together until dry.

Place painters tape about 8" from the left side of your wood. Center card stalk star and dry brush in blue all around the star up to the painters tape.

I decided to not paint the star white and just left it.

I moved the painters tape over to the left covering over the blue line you just painted. Dry brush the top half with white.

It should look just like this.  You can put painters tape in the center to keep from painting on the bottom half or if you are really good just paint to the line that separates the two pieces of wood.

Now dry brush the red.

When you are finished it should look like this.  I then put hooks on the back to hang on the wall and you are done.
