⭐A Star Spangled Banner⭐
I recently recovered some chairs in my home and wanted to do something “fun” so I decided to cover my seats, with the seats from old pairs of jeans. I love how the chairs turned out, and when I was finished I was left with 4 denim legs. Since they were dark, denim blue, I decided I would use them to create something for the Fourth of July. The design really came together when I visited a local thrift shop and found some red felt and fabric star patches. This Star Spangled Banner is one of two patriotic designs I created for your Fourth of July décor…
Blue Denim fabric
White triangular trim (you can use whatever wide, white lace you have on hand)
Star patches (cut outs)
Two pieces of red lace
Hot glue gun and glue
Cut a triangle pattern out of cardboard.
My triangles are 6 inches long from top to point and 5 inches wide at the top.
Trace the triangle pattern onto your fabric and cut out as many as you like.
I cut out 13 triangles, 7 red felt and 6 denim and created a 6 foot banner.
Fold the lace in half lengthwise (iron) and glue the top of each triangle side by side, to the back of the lace.
Fold over the front of the lace and glue to the front of the triangle.
Glue on stars.
Run a thin line of white glue along the back edges of the denim triangles to keep from fraying.
Fold the two pieces of red lace in half to form a loop and glue one to each end of the white lace to hang.
Hang and enjoy!
