This delightful magnet is a patriotic craft that is economical and easy to do with your troop or group.
What you will need:
- Approximately 25 Blue Sequins
- Approximately 50 Red Sequins
- Approximately 30 White Sequins
- Magnetic Sheets
- Tacky Glue
Instructions for the project:
Carefully cut a piece of magnetic sheet to 1-7/8″ x 3″. Beginning at the top left of the flag, run a bead of glue along the top edge. Place 6 blue sequins overlapped on the left side.
