For those looking for a creative way to celebrate Independence Day this year, why not plan a Fourth of July-themed picnic and make this rustic DIY American flag picnic blanket?

A super simple DIY, this American flag picnic blanket is really easy to make and will turn any picnic into a Fourth of July party. This picnic blanket is made from a long piece of white drop-cloth, which is durable and stands the test against grass stains. Using a roller brush, paint an enormous red and blue American flag across the dropcloth. The roller brush allows you to create a neat rustic, faded, vintage paint-pattern.

Grab a picnic basket, some Italian sodas and homemade sandwiches and take this American flag picnic blanket out on the town.
