DIY Patriotic Star Bunting Banner

Are you having a cookout today for the 4th and in need of a few last minute decorations.  This quick craft is super easy, inexpensive and will liven up any 4th of July party!

Patriotic Star Bunting/Banner Craft Materials:

*1 24 ct. package of Patriotic cupcake liners. I found mine at Dollar Tree for only $1.00 each.

*1 roll of twine

*single paper punch

*scissors

DIY Patriotic Star Bunting Banner Materials

Directions:

#1. Measure out the desired length of your banner and cut the twine using the scissors.

#2. Using the hole punch – make two holes about 2” a part on each cupcake liner. This is a great fine motor activity for the little ones to help with.

#3. Next, string your piece of twine through the cupcake liners spacing each liner about 1­2” a part.

I started on the front hole so the first cupcake liner so the twine was looped through the back of the cupcake liner. You could also do it the opposite way and have the twine showing in the front. Either way works. This is another fine motor activity for the kids to help with!

Once your cupcake liners are all strung hang you banner in the desired location. I love this craft as it’s quick, cute and super easy!
