I wanted to make one that said "Happy 4th of July". I found the coolest letters at Peonies and Poppyseeds. Click here to go to that website to see where to print off the letters.
I attached the cut out letters to a ribbon to hang them over my living room window.
The other banner is one that I saw on Martha Stewart.com. Click here to get the stars to print off.
I painted the paper stars with watercolor paint and then string them up.
I am pleased at how both of them turned out. Now to decorate my dining room table and add a few patriotic touches to my kitchen.
