Well it’s the 3rd of July and I’m trying to squeeze in one more project before the big day! This awesome, vintage-looking banner will look great on my porch for Independence Day! I love how the American flags are made out of rustic-looking burlap which definitely gives the banner an ‘old’ look. (I bought these flags at Micheals really cheap during the season). This project can be a ‘sew’ or a ‘no sew’ one if you’ve got either a hot glue gun or a sewing machine. WOOT!
So without further ado, here’s how I made it!
- Sewing machine or hot glue gun (to attach flags)
(Red, white, or blue ribbon looks great tied in between these flags)
- Small burlap American flags bought at the craft store (approx. 6×4 inches) I bought mine during 4th of July season at Michael’s really cheap, but if you can’t find them you can order them HERE
- Jute string
The flag was just hot glued onto the stick so I simply peeled it apart and pulled the stick off
Lay the string along the edge of the margin at the top
Fold the flap over the string
Now secure the flap down, either with a sewing machine, or a hot glue gun. I like sliding my flags around for adjusting, so I make sure to stay away from the string so as not to sew it permanently to the flag.
Now just tie some patriotic-colored ribbon in-between the flags and you’re done!
Happy 4th of July!
