Hanging your project.
I use these picture frame hangers I picked up in the big box store. The kit contains the wire hanger cable which supports 40lbs, plenty strong. I drilled pilot holes in the slats that hold all the pieces together aprox. 4.5 inches from the top. (quick note): when you measure down. measure from the top of the flag and make the support. This way if you supports aren't even across the top, your sure the hangers will be at the same location.
I'm adding materials left out on the initial list.
Pry bar or similar to pull apart the pallet boards

This kinda defeats the trash to treasure option, but you can always get pre-cut 1.5" boards form the local big box store and use them in place of pallet wood, if you want the NEW look. Another FYI, Lowes sells stain in OG (Old Glory) red ,white and blue that you could also use. Have fun experimenting. That's what make them all so different.
when attaching the slats together, make sure you nail or screw thru each slat to the back supports to hold it all together.
You can also add a frame or a stencil
did you prepare it for hanging? I love flags and would like to make one or more.
Thanks you for your interest in this project. I have added a "TIP" to show the process for hanging the project, and thank you for your vote in trash to treasure contest. If you have any other questions I would be happy to help you out.
