DIY: Three Patriotic Garland Ideas

DIY: Three Patriotic Garland Ideas #craft #4thofjuly #decoration #america

I love any excuse to make crafty decorations for parties and get-togethers. With 4th of July coming up this Friday, I decided to whip up not one, but three different DIY garlands to display at our annual BBQ with friends. All of these are simple projects that anyone can make in time for the 4th of July!

1. Paper Star Garland

• Red, white and blue construction paper
Red bakers twine (or string)
Star punch
Craft glue

Use a star kraft punch to punch stars from red, white and blue construction paper. Cut a piece of bakers twine (any length is fine, I recommend 4′-6′). Add a drop of glue onto the center of a paper star and place the twine into the glue. Continue glueing stars to the twine, about 1-2″ apart. Let glue dry and then hang and display.

2. Patriotic Pom-pom Garland

• Red, white and blue yarn
Pom pom maker
Bakers Twine
• Scissors
• Yarn needle

I recommend watching this video tutorial from Clover Needlecraft for instructions on how to use a pom-pom maker. Make 9 yarn pom-poms (3 red, 3 white, and 3 blue). Use a yarn needle and bakers twine to string the pom-poms together.

To make the tissue ‘fireworks’, follow this tutorial by Confetti Sunshine on how to make a tissue flower garland. I used a yarn needle and bakers twine to string the tissue ‘fireworks’ together.
