This is slightly embarrassing to admit, but I have ZERO Forth of July Decorations. I did make a flag frame to celebrate Memorial Day this year, but besides that I have zip. Maybe it is because I do not have enough storage for another holiday box. Or maybe it is because I am normally not around the 4th. Whatever the reason...I decided this year I was going to change that.
I saw on 504 Main a beautiful DIY 4th of July Banner and I was inspired. Thanks, Holly.
Here is my USA 4th of July Banner…made with stuff around the house…
I used drop cloth material for the triangles, jute for the string, & the red ribbon is burlap. To make the letters I cut out letters from freezer paper and painted it with acrylic paint. I am a banner cheat...I stapled the triangles to the jute.
I did get the kids involved with painting the letters. They love helping me! Great moment to talk about why we celebrate the 4th of July and work on our letters (Mr. Wesley)
To anchor the banner I made a metal stars out of Coke cans. The beauty of this… It is waterproof and free. Plus, I do not have to store these...just throw them in the recycle next week!
Here is how I made it in pictures. Pretty easy!
There you have it…my 4th of July Decoration made with
crap stuff I already have!! Don’t you just love décor that does not require a trip to the store???
Happy Birthday, America!!
Enjoy your 4th of July!!!
