I went into Dollar Tree a few months ago for some plastic cups and found these garden flag holders! It's pretty basic, but for $1 I couldn't pass it up.
I had picked this paint color out at Lowes from the Spring sample collection. These are very small samples of paint, but perfect for small craft projects like this one. I had a coupon which made it free! I was wanting the Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid, but it was not available with the coupon.
I used my Gypsy machine to design and size the words and then cut a stencil out of vinyl on my Cricut. I stuck the vinyl to the burlap and then painted over. I hung it up to dry outside. I then folded over the top of the burlap to create a pocket for the rod, and stitched around the perimeter of the flag to prevent additional fraying.
