Canada Flag Original Design

I use pallet wood for a lot of different things.  This time I wanted to make a Canadian flag but in a different way than usual.

My pallet wood pieces are 5/8" thick and 2 3/4" wide, cut to 12" long.

I used 7 pieces, 4 painted red and 3 painted white, they are joined with screw eyes.

Final size, top to bottom, 12" wide x 24" long and very heavy at about 4 lbs. 


Happy Canada Day


  1. I love this!!! I just might copy you - if I can fit it in between building shutters, a roof for my potting bench, a lean-to shed and the door for my stupid pantry. Um I mean lovely pantry. Yes that's what I mean. :) Did I mention installing a window over my laundry tub? I am my own worst enemy.

    Happy Canada Day!

  2. Julie - this is absolutely fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I most definitely need to make one of these - did you use a stencil for the leaf or are you that good???
    I always see American ones and think ours wouldn't look as good - WOW was I wrong big time!!!

  3. I love this flag Julie! You do such great work!
