Patriotic Bunting




In anticipation of our 4th of July Weekend, I have placed a few patriotic touches here and there around my house. Not too much, but just a little red, white and blue to celebrate our country and Independence Day. I made this patriotic bunting two years ago and it is still the star. It is bright, vibrant and a bit unexpected with its polka dots and stripes.

This is a project that was so easy to make and with all the scrapbook paper available, is only limited by your imagination. As long as you keep to the red, white and blue theme, any pattern can be used. It looks great on my mantel, but would look perfect strung between two trees outside or on the front of a buffet table.

To make, simply cut a template for the shape of bunting you prefer, trace on scrapbook paper, cut out then string on red and white butcher's twine by folding down and gluing the top edge. For complete step by step instructions, look here. Simple as can be - my favorite kind of craft.

Happy Tuesday!
