With its 13 stripes and 13 pom-pom stars, this ribbon flag is both cute and historically accurate.
Use self-adhesive magnetic tape to hang the flag on a metal door, or attach a ribbon to the ends of the wooden strip to hang it from a nail.
Cut four red and three white 14-inch-long strips, and three red and three white 24-inch-long strips.
Cut seven blue 10-1/2-inch-long strips.
Use tacky glue to adhere the blue ribbons to the shorter red and white lengths, overlapping the ends a half inch.
Glue all 13 ribbons to a 12-inch-long strip of wood, such as a ruler or paint stirrer, then cover the wood with blue ribbon.
For the circle of stars, glue 13 silver pom-poms to the field of blue.
Trim the ribbon ends with pinking shears, then glue a white button to the back of each end for weight.
