How to make a US Flag Collage…

See steps in photos…

  1. Draw a rough outline of the US flag on a piece of paper (or download the US Flag Colouring Page)
  2. Tear up pieces of tissue or crepe paper
  3. Scrunch the pieces of tissue paper up into small balls.
  4. Glue the coloured tissue to the flag in the correct spaces.
  5. Glue 50 white balls of paper on top of the blue as the stars.



  • Use this same craft for other flags. Some are available for download here.
  • Print off the US Flag Colouring Page instead of drawing the flag from scratch.
  • Two to four children decorating each flag is ample.  If each kid does their own the craft can become a little tedious as it is quite time consuming.
  • Use white glue instead of stick glue.
  • Do not try to leave gaps in the blue for the stars – just stick them on top.
  • You can use actual star stickers instead of white crepe paper if you have them.
  • If you are using white paper, leave the white stripes plain.
