We finally caught a break in the extremely hot & humid summer weather, so I took that as a sign to get the house decorated for the 4th of July. The boys pressure-washed the porch, while LittleGirl and I created a no-sew bunting. We are really pleased with the results!
|I love how these flap in the breeze!|
Never mind that little twist in the blue bandanna. It still looks patriotic. ;)
This is a super-easy project you can try with your littles. Here's all you need:
- Red and Blue Bandannas (we used 3 of each color)
- Scraps of Ribbon
- Long Spool of Ribbon (we used about 4 yards)
Cut each bandanna in half lengthwise.
Cut each half in half, creating 4 squares from one bandanna.
Tie a scrap of ribbon onto the cut point of the bandanna.
Once you have a big ol' pile of tied-up squares, begin tying to your squares onto the long ribbon, alternating colors.
Hang on your porch or anywhere you want to inject a little patriotic flair.
Here's the whole porch decked out and ready to celebrate America. Let Freedom Ring!
|Pardon my pitiful looking camellias. They had to be severely pruned this year due to their age.|
30 years is a long time to go without a haircut! Thankfully, they are finally growing back.
And one more view from the other side...
Do you decorate to celebrate your country?
