Decorative outdoor flags – What can be done with large, decorative flags, apart from erecting a giant flagpole in the front yard? You can use decorative flags indoors or outdoors, for some quite surprising applications. They are generally weather resistant and are unlikely to be damaged by excessive moisture. There are several fun and interesting ways to use large, decorative flags as decoration.
Hang a large, decorative banner in place of a window curtain, or stitches on a swollen valance. Decorative outdoor flags are often somewhat translucent, allowing a small amount of light to pass through, which makes them ideal for improvised curtains on windows that are not very sunny.

To activate any decorative outdoor flags on a swollen valance, fold it in half lengthwise and run two parallel stitches along the fabric. The first stitch should be about 3 inches from the end, where each side of the fabric was joined. The second point should be executed 3 to 4 inches from the first, although if your curtain rod is wider than that, you may want to use a different measure. Run a stitch in practice a length of 1/2 inch to see if the rod slides very well on. Adjust the width, if necessary, to accommodate a thicker or thinner rod.
