RED, WHITE & BLUE
Turn Burlap into a fabulous 4th of July Decoration
The 4th of July is my absolute favorite holiday not only because I am a summer baby, but because of the warmth of summer on your skin, the brightness of exploding fireworks in the starry night sky, and the sand in your toes that comes from BEACH time. So, to add a little something extra with the decorations of celebrating our country’s independence, I made burlap bunting flags in the colors red, white and blue. It’s fairly simple to make these decorative pieces, and you can save close to $60 instead of buying the plastic product from the store! Plus, burlap is real fabric that has texture, more subdue colors, and is authentic.
BEFORE YOU GET STARTED!
Here are a few side notes:
-Burlap is very messy so stay in one area and have the vacuum handy
-It goes airborne
-Takes about 4 hours from start to finish
-$36 total minus 40% (coupon) $21.60
LET’S GET STARTED!
-Go to your local Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or craft supply store and buy around 3 yards of each color of fabric (red, white and blue)! Burlap is around $4 per yard (yes, only $4). You can even get a little creative and by burlap with stars and stripes on them to make it even more patriotic!
