Building a fort in the living room is loads of fun for kids. A fort flag is a fun way to stake out the territory and let everyone know who was responsible for the structure.
What You Need
- Large twig from your yard
- 8” x 10” piece of stiff felt
- Felt alphabet stickers
- Hole punch
- Jute or other twine
How To Make It
- First, place the alphabet letters (do not remove sticky backs yet) ontothe stiff felt. Be sure to leave a little room on the left for the hole punch. Once you have them where you want them, remove the sticker backs and attach the letters to the stiff felt.
- Use a hole punch to add holes about an inch from the left side of the stiff felt.
- Cut jute string into 6” lengths and insert into the holes.
- Tie the jute strings around the twig to attach the flag to the flagpole.
- An alternative to the felt sticker letters could be puffy paint or glitter glue, however this will increase the craft time frame considerably due to drying time.
- Stiff felt can be found at your local craft supply store.
