Flag Holder

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2006


  • Wood glue

  • Wooden furniture feet

  • Wooden lamp bases (ours were about 5 inches in diameter)

  • A drill

  • A 1/4-inch drill bit

  • A paintbrush

  • Latex paint

  • 4-by-6-inch flags attached to 1/4-inch-wide wooden staffs


  1. Glue flat end of furniture foot to center of lamp base; dry.

  2. Drill 6 angled holes, each 1/2 inch deep, around base and 4 more around top of furniture foot, spacing holes evenly apart.

  3. Make one 1/2-inch-deep vertical hole at the top of the display. (If you want to display larger or smaller flags, simply use a drill bit that matches the diameter of the staff.)

  4. Paint the wood; we chose a blue to match the table coverings.

  5. Once the paint has dried, poke your flags securely into the drilled holes.
