Hello once again, Night Owls! It’s Cori from Hey, Let’s Make Stuff here to share a simple but fun craft that’s perfect for any Fourth of July celebration! If you’re planning on taking your kids to a parade this year, they’ll love these Scrapbusting Patriotic Streamers – plus you can make them with things you probably already have in your crafting stash!
- Various ribbons, strips of fabric, tulle, etc.
- Wooden dowels
- Hot glue gun
- Plastic pearls or other baubles
Cut all of your scraps so they are about 10″ long. My dowels were 12″ long, so adjust if yours are different. I had eight different scraps for each streamer, but of course you could do more or less if you wanted. Along with ribbon and tulle, I cut out some strips of fabric to add some dimension.
My dowels were actually squared off, so I hot glued the end of each scrap to each side. But if you have round dowels, you can just glue to the curved edge. I ended up with two layers of ribbon and scraps.
Once you’re finished, hot glue a pear bead or other bauble to the top to finish it off and you’re done!
These are so much fun to wave during a parade or fireworks show — your kids will love them!
