How to make craft

Step #1

Prepare your workspace. Lay down wax paper to protect your crafting surface.

Take the sticks and start painting them. Paint three red, two white, and two blue sticks.

Leave them to dry completely before you continue decorating.

Step #2

Assemble the stripes. Once the paint dries completely, lay the red and white sticks horizontally side-by-side, alternating the colors. Use craft glue to secure them together along the edges, forming a rectangle.

Pro Tip: Feeling creative? You can customize the number of stripes on your flag. Simply use more or fewer red and white sticks to achieve your desired design.

Step #3

Now, for the blue part, cut the blue sticks in half. You will need three halves.

Step #4

Glue them on the left upper corner.

Step #5

Add some white stars onto the flag. I used stars for decorating cookies, but you can
use some pearl stars or maybe stars from cardboard.

Step #6

To finish the flag's look, just add the thin wooden stick on the left side of the back.

Reinforcing for Strength (Optional): Want to ensure your flag waves proudly for a long time? Glue another popsicle stick horizontally across the back of the flag, lining it up with the top of the stripes. This adds extra stability to your creation.
