Easy DIY USA Sign

Sharing is caring!

I realized the other day when organizing my holiday decor, that I only had a sad little box of patriotic decorations. I decided that I needed to add some more red, white & blue decor. Here I will show you how I turned a pair of American Flag Swim Trunks into an easy DIY USA sign.

Step 1 – American Flag Fabric

I didn’t have much luck at the store finding American flag fabric, so when I ran into the thrift store and saw these swim trunks hanging up I grabbed them right away!

You don’t need to use swim trunks, there are a ton of different things you can use to recreate this sign.

Here are some other fabrics you can use:

As you can see there are a lot of different options out there.

STEP 2 – CUT FABRIC

The first thing I did to make my DIY USA Sign was to cut the swim trunks up. I ended up using these scraps for a few different projects!

Step 3 – Find Board To Use As Backing

I have had this random wood sign sitting in my craft storage room for a long time! I was glad to finally put it to good use.

You can make your own wood sign with pallet board or scrap wood or you can buy a pre-made one like this.

You can use this to decorate for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day!

Step 4 – Attach Fabric To Wood Sign

I thought about using mod podge to attach these but instead went with the handy glue gun. This was quick and easy – just how I like it!

Step 5- DIY USA Sign Letters

For the letters I used this macrame cord. You can also use some twine, but for this project I preferred something a bit more heavy.

I just kinda eyeballed the sizes. Make sure to dry fit them all before gluing anything down. There is also no need to glue the entire letter, just put a dab of hot glue on the ends and one in the middle and you won’t have to worry about a glob of glue getting everywhere.
