Painted Cross Stitch Pegboard Flag

Painted faux Cross Stitch on pegboard- Such a simple and cute idea!Since this is Memorial Day weekend I am sharing a patriotic flag craft.  I’ve seen really cool cross stitched peg board creations on Pinterest, where people have used yarn or twine to actually stitch the pegboard, but I wanted a faster and easier way.  So I decided I would just paint the ‘stitching.'
