This adorable St.Patrick’s Day No-Sew Garden Flag is an easy DIY project to make .Also, can you believe this Garden Flag is made from a burlap placemat?!
I just happen to be in Hobby Lobby looking for gift bags when I spotted the placemats.
Of course, I looked liked I was confused as I stood n the aisle holding up the placemat, as I visualized it in my front yard.
This project is perfect for somebody like me that can’t sew.
I used HeatnBond to hold the seam together at the top of the flag.
Furthermore, I love how simple the St.Patrick’s Day Garden Flag was to make.
The best part about making my St.Patrick’s Day outdoor flag, it’s one of a kind.

How to make a St.Patrick’s Day No-Sew Garden Flag
First, to make a St.Patrick’s Day No-Sew Garden Flag, you’ll need to flip the placemat over, measure 2 1/2 inches at the top of the placemat making a seam and fold it down.
Use the iron to press the top of the placemat down flat.
Lift the seam up and place a piece of HeatnBond along the bottom of the seam.
Follow the direction on the HeatnBond and iron the seam closed making a pocket that will fit onto the flagpole.
Tape the edges of the placemat with the 1 1/2 inch masking tape.
Lay the placemat on a piece of cardboard. Paint the placement white and let dry.
Once the white paint dries, remove only the top piece of tape. Use the 2-inch masking tape to make stripes.
See the above picture for an example. Paint the stripes using the Irish Moss color. Then let the placemat dry.
Once the placemat dries, remove all the tape then glue on the St. Patrick’s Day plaque and the ribbon.
Slide the no-sew garden flag onto the flagpole and admire! You will be the envy of your neighborhood with your new festive holiday flag.
