Americana Flag Frame

It’s almost that time of year where we honor our Amazing Country and Flag. Kelly joined the United States Army a year after we were married. During the time he was serving our Country, I learned to love and honor our Flag more deeply than I ever have before. When I see our Great Flag Flying tears well up in my eyes.

To start my Americana Crafting I wanted to make this Darling Framed Flag!!! It turned out so cute and was super easy to make.


  • 5 x 7 Picture Frame (any one you like)

  • Red Fabric

  • Blue Fabric

  • Cream Lace Ribbon ( I got mine from Dollar Tree)

  • Star printout (I just googled Star Image and printed it on my printer.)

  • Cream decorative rick-rack for the Star (I got mine at Michaels)

  • Scissors, Glue Gun, and Glue Sticks

The first thing I did was take the Picture Frame apart. I removed the backing, paper & glass from the frame. I just threw away the paper insert.

Now just set aside the glass and frame. You will be decorating the backing of the picture frame.

Next I took the Red fabric and cut it into “three” 1 x 8 inch strips. I also took the cream lace ribbon and cut “four” pieces 8 inches long.

Now take the strips of Fabric and Ribbon and simply glue them to the backing of the frame. I used Hot Glue to glue them down.

Once the hot glue is dry and the fabric secure, trim around the backing so the edges are nice and clean.

Next I took my blue fabric and cut a rectangle 4 x 2 1/2 inches and hot glued it down in the top left corner.

Now it’s time to make the Star. I printed the Star, then took my scissors to cut it out.

Once the Star was cut out, I flipped it over to the white side of the paper, so the blue wouldn’t show through. I then took this darling rick-rack and glued it down to the Star. I love the little bit of silver in the rick-rack. Isn’t it so cute?

Then you just take that cute Star and hot glue it to the center of your Blue fabric.

The very last thing is I did was re-assemble the Picture Frame. I think this turned out so BEAUTIFUL and will look Darling on my Entry Way Table!!!!!!! I hope you all will make one for your HOME. It is the perfect Americana Decor.
