Like one of the aesthetics mentioned, I wanted to use the rustic old wood aesthetic and bring in some Colorado flag art. I found a few old pallets behind an autobody shop on Baseline and 28th, and with the company’s permission, brought one home. Carefully sawing the cool weathered boards out, I salvaged five lengths of similar size. Using drywall screws upcycled from my landlord’s garage, I screwed them in halfway around the perimeter, and followed a circular pattern for the round contours of the flag. Then, with some knitting yarn found at Goodwill, I traced out the blue, red, and yellow sections of the flag.
This is version 1, and I’ll probably make a few tweeks- I’d like to leave more wood visible in all the colored sections, and need to fix the lopsided C, but I’m happy with where it’s moving!
