Don't they just look adorable? They're basically a shabby chic deconstructed American flag.

We love the wabi sabi effect that the combination of all the different fabrics strung together gives.

If you have some red, white, and blue fabric lying around your house, perfect. Otherwise, you can totally go to your local fabric store and pick up different fabrics in those colors.

Blogger Jenny Reimold uses a large wooden rod to hang the rag cuttings from, and even includes some fun pom pom garland pieces for some fun texture.

All you have to do to make the rag flag is rip your fabric into long strips and tie them to your rod of choice.

It's seriously as simple as that.

For the blue corner section, you can cut some smaller strips and hang them together until you reach a small rectangle shape, or glue your blue rectangle to the fabric.

Bonus points if you find blue fabric with stars!

When your rag flag is all finished, it's ready to be hung with some string wherever you like. Then you're really ready to celebrate!
