It’s time for another set of holiday streamers! Since you all liked the Valentine’s Day and the St. Patrick’s Day versions, the Fourth of July seemed like the perfect time to give you a new dose of this super simple red, white and blue garland. These look great as 4th of July decorations…on the wall, on a table or as chair decor, and I particularly love them mixed with the patriotic fringey garland I picked up at my local party store. Oh how I love the festiveness of decorating for Independence Day!
How To Make Your Own 4th of July Garland
- Red, White and/or Blue Streamers
- Computer Paper (to cut out your template)
DIY Star Garland Directions:
Make your star template. It should be about 1.5″ at its widest point. I simply pulled one up on my computer screen and traced it onto a piece of computer paper. Cut a length of streamers and fold it, accordion style, to a finished with that is slightly narrower than your template. To make the horizontal garland (pictured in the first photo) trace your star on the folded streamers with the widest points hanging slightly over the edge. Cut, leaving the overhanging points attached.
To make the vertical garland, fold your streamers accordion style slightly smaller than the height of your star. Trace your star onto the streamers, this time letting the top point and the bottom two points overhang slightly. Cut, leaving the overhanging points attached.
Unfold (and use the scraps as confetti)…
Hang! On the wall…
…or on a chair!
So many options, so little time.
