Recently I shared with you these Patriotic Hot Dog Trays, which could also be used for Nachos at your family Fourth of July BBQ. In the background of the photo I have this Fourth of July Banner that I used as part of my Fourth of July Décor. I had several of you ask about how I made it. If you are interested in the Fourth of July Soda Bottle labels, you can find them here: Fourth of July Soda Bottle Labels
It was pretty easy really. I simply took some burlap and cut it into some triangle. I made a pattern out of paper to use as a template. Then traced it out on the burlap. It worked out that I could flip the triangle upside down every other triangle and I didn’t have any waste.
Then I cut out 14 total triangles. I wanted to make two different banners so I could criss-cross them over the table.
Then I took the same triangle template and made one with stripes on it and then cut out every other stripe so I could have a template to use for painting.
Then I simply put the template over a triangle and rolled red paint over it with my foam roller. I made 6 of them.
Then I did the same thing and made a template for the stars and then painted them blue. I made 8 of them.
Then I simply attached them to some twine with some little paper clips. You can find them at most craft stores. Then I hung them up by attaching the banners to the sides of the table which are attached to some poles.
I originally saw a banner in the Pottery Barn catalog and I pretty much knocked it off ;)! Make one for your Holiday BBQ!
