What You Will Need

  • Burlap triangle flags
  • Craft paint red and blue
  • Sponge brush
  • Felt white
  • Scissors
  • Stars printed from your computer
  • Marker
  • Jute twine
  • Hot glue and a glue gun


  • Paint the burlap triangles with a thick coat of red or blue paint. Allow them to dry overnight before continuing.
  • Make your stars. Print a star shape from your computer and cut it out of the paper. Use a marker to trace the shape repeatedly onto the felt. Cut the stars out of the felt. You will need one star for each burlap triangle.
  • Use hot glue to glue the triangles onto the jute twine and a star on each triangle. Make your banner as long or as short as you want.
  • Trim any extra jagged edges and hang up your patriotic banner to enjoy!
