A family is a team, and every team needs a flag! Get your family together to help with this fabric craft or make a family flag on your own using these instructions.

What You'll Need:

  • One 8x12-inch piece of felt
  • Ruler
  • Assorted colors of felt scraps
  • Blunt scissors
  • Craft glue
  • 18-inch wood dowel with a 1/4-inch diameter

How to Make Felt Family Flag:

Step 1: Cut out a V-shape at one 8-inch end of the felt.

Step 2: Make a pocket for the dowel at the other short end of the felt. Apply a line of glue along the end of the felt, and fold over 1 inch. Let the glue dry.

Step 3: To make a coat of arms for your family flag, cut a shield shape from felt. Glue the felt shield to the center of the flag.

Step 4: Cut up other shapes of felt to glue on the shield shape. Think of things your family likes to do. If you like to go camping, cut a tent shape. Glue these other shapes to the shield shape. Let the glue dry.

Step 5: Insert the dowel in the pocket. If you want, add a tassel to the top of the dowel.

Create a fabric craft that marks the spot in the next project.
