I love decorating my home for holidays throughout the year. Nothing too crazy, but just enough to add a festive touch.

Unless I’m having a party though, the 4th of July is one of those occasions where I usually don’t do too much. This year, I decided to change that!

I loved the Conversation Heart Banner that I created for Valentine’s Day, and I wanted to make a similar garland for the 4th of July.

So I decided to make a DIY Stars and Stripes Bunting, and I created a free printable so you can use, it too!

DIY Stars and Stripes Bunting

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own DIY patriotic banner:

Start by printing out the bunting template, which you can find at the end of this post, on the card stock.

I printed three copies of the template for my bunting. The amount of copies you will need will depend on the size of your banner.

Next, cut out all of the pieces and lay them out to decide on a pattern. I created three rows: one with 5 flags, one with 7 flags, and one with 9 flags, alternating stars and stripes in each row.

After you’ve laid out your pattern, punch a hole in the top two corners of the flags, as shown below.

Cut a long piece of baker’s twine for each row. Thread the twine through the first hole, behind the flag, and up through the second hole (see below).

Repeat with the remaining flags until your bunting is completely strung together.

To hang the bunting, either knot it to a nail, like I did, or tape it to the wall. (Command hooks are great if you don’t want to damage your wall.) Repeat with remaining rows.

I decided to hang the small stars from the ends of my Stars and Stripes Bunting. They’re attached to the baker’s twine with a little tape on their backside.

That’s it. Your bunting is ready to be admired!

Tips and ideas:

  • I left a white border when cutting out the flags, but that’s not necessary.
  • Experiment with the layout. Hang one long row or string up more than three rows.
  • Instead of alternating stars and stripes, hang rows with all stripes or all stars.
  • Hang the little stars in between the flags.
  • Cut more baker’s twine than you think you’ll need, that way you won’t run out.
  • Use the little stars to create a mini bunting for a cake topper, or use them individually to decorate paper straws or cupcakes.
