DIY 4th of July bunting
Okay I can gush like crazy about how stinkin cute this DIY 4th of July bunting is because it wasn’t our idea! Our lovely sister Sandee is the brains behind this cuteness and we adore it! Aaaaaaaaaand, she even had leftover fabric and insisted we make our own so it was free free free, our fav kinda craft, whoop! (; Seriously, cutest bunting ever, love how the blue and white polka dots represent the stars of the American flag and the stripes mimic the rest, adorable. Great idea, sister!
Super easy to make. Freehand a template from regular printer paper. Mine ended up being about 10″ x 6″. First I traced the pattern onto burlap and cut out. I trimmed the pattern down a little before I traced it onto the blue and then red fabric so bits of burlap would peek out. Then I cut out all my pieces, ending up with 6 total.
To adhere it together, I used 3M’s spray adhesive. This stuff is legit! It can stick anything together, I swear…even fingers so beware, spray carefully (; It dries in seconds which is a fatty bonus! I then cut a strip of burlap to line the top and dabbed hot glue across each top of each bunting piece to hang it all together. How easy is that!
Hang on your front porch and enjoy! Love this holiday, it’s my favorite holiday of them all! ps: Hi cute Eighteen25 printable!
And here’s how it looks on Sandee’s cute black front door, paired with a giant $5 star she scored at Katie/Vintage Rose Wrap’s garage sale (;
