Made this American Flag from scraps of barn wood, glued to an mdf backing, painted, torched for distressing, and sealed with a clear satin finish.

Thanks all

roofner – I found this online http://www.usflag.org/flagspecs.html

I made my flag 37”x 19.5” and made my own stencil to fit that size. I made it on a 8.5”x11” sheet of paper so that I could make copies. It’s half the stars, so I had to make 2 copies and overlap them side by side. I’ll upload it as a picture, then maybe you can print it at 8.5”x11” if you want to make a 19.”x37” flag

This flag is very nice and rustic. I love it and I think that it’s a wonderful eye catcher.
