I had some weather-proof material left from another project, and I really wanted a flag for my front porch...something personalized and not too cheesy. The store-bought kind are a little to cartoony (yep, that's a word in my book) for what I like. Here is what I came up with. The birds are rub-ons (craft-store) Make sure you spray them with a clear coat of some kind to keep them weather-proof. I also used washable fabric paint. I'm thinking I'll have to bring her in when the weather gets really bad, but as for a little moisture here and there, I think it will be OK. Oh, the "flag pole" is actually a curtain rod that wasn't being used. I drilled a couple of holes in the rod and attched the flag with wire. Hope this inspires some front porch creativity!
