Last week I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs and came across a gorgeous patriotic tablecloth that was made entirely out of bandanas by Kendra at My Insanity - please check out the pics on her blog. For two days straight I literally could not get the idea of using those red, white and blue bandanas out of my head. So on day three I finally decided to try making some other 4th of July decorations inspired by the tablecloth.
I thought it would be fun to make a placemat using the bandanas, so I cut them up and put them back together to look like...a flag, of course!
I'm a huge fan of banners - I think they're a fun and easy way to decorate a party space. So here is my attempt at a 4th of July party banner using the bandanas...
The banner was really easy to make - here are the steps I used:
(1) cut up the bandana into four squares, (2) fold each square into a triangle and iron to get nice creases, (3) attach the triangles to a ribbon and hang.
Kendra - thanks again for inspiring me to create these projects!
