Giant Flag

patriotic stayathomeista house

Because who doesn't love a giant flag?



Plus it's a good excuse to show you the front of the house.

With some patriotic waving from my husband and daughters.

We ordered the 12' x 16' flag from Amazon (where I would buy everything if I could).

We added grommets to the corners to help hang it.

adding grommets to a flag

We didn't have any string or twine like we thought, and it was already midday on the 4th, so we just improvised and used ribbon:)


Then then flag flapped a bit too much.


So we added hand weights to the corners to help hod it down.



Can you see the lovely purple 2 pounders:)




It was pretty awesome. And now we have a giant flag for any events we might host: 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the Superbowl, Memorial Day, birthday parties...

Every flag needs a set of weights! Adds just the right amount of purple!

Your house is gorgeous! Love the huge flag too. I searched for buntings and found some huge beauties. Got them home, opened the package and they were rinky dinky! Needless to say, they were never hung.
