Red White and Blue 4th of July Banner

 
We have such a fun round up for you today...
 110 Red, White & Blue Ideas! 
How fun is that! Patriotic treats, decorations, free printables,
party ideas and lots more.
 
Lets get started with our Red, White and Blue Fourth of July Banner

 
SUPPLIES:
• Recollections Burlap Banner Kit - found ours at Michaels - you could always cut out your own
• 4 wood stars - also found at Michaels
• Paint - we used Americana Ultra Blue Deep, True Red and White Birch
• Glue gun & glue stick
• Paint brushes - regular foam brush and a foam pouncer
• Blue Glitter - optional - we didn't end up glittering our stars after all


STEPS:
• Paint your banner red. We gave ours two good coats letting them dry good in between.
 
 
• Give your stars two coats of the blue paint. [If you'd like to glitter your stars. Just do one coat of paint. Then paint on a coat of glue and sprinkle with glitter.]
• Polka Dot your banner using the white paint and the foam pouncer.
• Hot glue the jute that came in the banner kit along the back of each flag. Make sure to space them out evenly.
• Hot glue your stars to every other flag.
 
 
 
Hang it up and enjoy!!

  6. So funny. I am in a banner swap. I just sent mine out yesterday. My pieces are so similar. I used red and while polka dot vinyl. Then I used a big blue star on the vinyl. I love the burlap on yours. Cute.
