While I'm not a huge Fourth of July decorator (I know, I say this every year), I did, however, decide to create a Fourth of July garland this year. 

How To Make A Fourth of July Banner

After perusing my local Dollar Tree the other day I found myself staring at all the Fourth of July decorations -- an entire aisle no less. And while I noticed a premade tassel garland that might have done the trick alone I was sure I could make a better, more interesting one.

So I ended up buying the unadorned, red white and blue tassel garland, along with -- wait for it -- patriotic hot dog holders (how cute is that?), and four foam star wands which I wanted to use as stencils for paper stars. Total expenditure: $3.75.

I then took a foam star and traced it onto one of the paper hot dog holders and ended up with a great addition to the garland -- a star made out of "flag" paper.

I took the thin, red and blue ribbons that were tied around the foam stars and used them to hang the traced paper stars onto the tassel garland.

Initially I hung it up inside the house on the kitchen hutch. 
But it was really hard to get a decent picture of it so I moved it outside for a better view.

While it really wasn't long enough to hang on our pergola, I set it up there anyway so I could get some decent pictures during the golden hour.

I was thrilled with how my DIY Fourth of July garland turned out.

Just by adding some patriotic stars I think I created a much more festive Fourth of July garland overall.
