How to Make Patriotic Bunting

A patriotic bunting is an expensive way to decorate for the 4th of July and more!

What You Will Need

  • Red White, and Blue Bandanas (I used one of each color)
  • Jute Twine
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue and Glue Gun


  • Each bandana will make eight flags. Cut each one in half, in half again, then in half once more.
  • To make the bunting flags, fold each one in half and start about 2 inches from the bottom with your cut as shown below.
  • Repeat until you have enough flags for your patriotic bunting. The number of flags will depend on how long you want your banner to be.
  • Press out any wrinkles in your bunting flags before continuing. Then run a bead of glue across the top of each flag and add in jute twine.
  • Add another bead of glue on top of the twine, and fold over the bandana flag. This will give you a more finished appearance.
  • Continue until you have the length that you wish. Then hang it anywhere that you wish.
