Learn how to tackle five simple projects from the 2012 June/July Issue of HGTV Magazine.
Emily Henderson's vintage flag has a bold look, but you could easily use a large piece of patterned fabric or printed burlap (from an old feed bag, for example). DIY Steps: 1. Arrange four 1" x 3" pine furring strips cut slightly smaller than the length and width of your fabric in a rectangle. 2 Screw them together with flat corner braces. 3. Lay the fabric over the wood frame, then secure it by hammering in carpet tacks or upholstery nails around the sides. If you don't want to see the tacks, stretch the fabric over the frame and use a staple gun to secure it to the back. Another option: Buy a stretched canvas from an art supply store and glue or staple your fabric over the canvas, securing it in back.
