4th OF JULY BANNER
Recently I shared with you these Patriotic Hot Dog Trays, which could also be used for Nachos at your family Fourth of July BBQ or Memorial Day. In the background of the photo I have this Fourth of July Banner that I used as part of my independence day Décor. I had several of you ask about how I made it.

HOW TO MAKE A BANNER
I originally saw this american flag usa banner in the Pottery Barn catalog and I pretty much knocked it off ;)! I thought it would be fun to make one for your Holiday BBQ! Sharing how I made my own patriotic banners.
- red and blue paint
- foam roller
- It was pretty easy really. I simply took some burlap and cut it into some triangle pennants. I made a pattern out of cardstock 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.
3. 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.
4. Then I simply put the template over a triangle and rolled red paint over it with my foam roller. I made 6 of them.
5. Then I did the same thing and made a template for the stars and then painted the blue banners. I made 8 of them.
6. Then I simply attached them to some twine and tied a loop on each end and then hung with some little clothespins. You can find them at most craft stores. Then I hung them up by attaching the patriotic bunting to the sides of the table which are attached to some poles.
