Hi friends! Are you gearing up for the 4th of July, which will be here BEFORE you know it?! It’s one of my favorite times of the year – chock full of BBQs, family, friends and fireworks! Who doesn’t love the fireworks?! Well if you’re a fan of the big Red, White and Blue – have WE got a post for you today! Not only am I sharing my latest FAVE Red, White and Blue project – these Painted Burlap Patriotic Place Settings – BUT if you head on down to the end of this post you’ll also find links to OVER 100 MORE amazing Red, White and Blue crafts, recipes and more! Everything you could ever want to prep for the upcoming holiday. Now that’s what I’m talking about…so make sure you HOP around to some more great projects once you’re done here!

What you’ll need:

  • Burlap bags (I picked up from Pick Your Plum)
  • Acrylic paints
  • Cardboard
  • Paint brush
  • White chalk or paint pen

And the steps:

  1. Slip a piece of cardboard into your burlap bag so that the paint does not bleed through to the other side.
  2. Paint the top of the bag white, which will be the base for your flag, allowing the red and blue to pop!
  3. Once the white is dry, paint a blue rectangle in the top left and add red stripes to the flag and let that dry as well.
  4. Once your Red, White and Blue areas are dry, add stars to the blue area. I used a chalk pen that was handy to draw them on easily.
  5. Pull the cardboard out while somewhat wet (to avoid sticking to the bag), and allow to dry.

And what you’re left with when you’re all done? One adorable flag-painted bag, the start to amazing Painted Burlap Patriotic Place Settings!
