Party DIY {Flag Garland}

Believe it or not, I'm just about ready for this years Fourth of July bash. Seems crazy I know, to be ready two days early, but with a quick trip to Jacksonville planned for tomorrow, preparation was the least stressful solution. All that is left for today is to prep out the menu leaving only assembly and cooking for Thursday morning. The house is all decorated with patriotic DIYs, one of which I'm sharing with you today. This flag garland is easy to make and a simple rustic statement to adorn the front of tables or windows. All you need is a bit of twine, hot glue and some small flags. There is two different ways to make it too. You can either leave the flags on the wood poles or remove the staples and glue them to the twine. Here's the how to both ways...

:: Supplies ::
Miniature Flags
Hot Glue

:: Directions ::
(For Garland on the Pole)
1. Measure a piece of twine 1.5 times the width of your window. Place one flag in the center of the twine and tie a knot around the top of the pole. 
2. Place a flag on either side, 18" from the center flag. Tie a knot around the top of each side flag. Hang across window. 

(For Lose Flag Garland)
1. Measure a piece of twine 1.5 times the width of your window. 
2. Using pliers, remove staples from flag to disconnect from pole. L
3. Lay twine flat on the floor. Place a strip of hot glue at the top of the flag and attach at the center of the piece of twine. Repeat with remaining four flags placing 18" apart. Hang across window.

Have a great Tuesday!
