Fourth of July Garland
Start off by going on a gathering mission through your Christmas and craft supplies looking for anything red, white & blue that can be used to make patriotic ornaments.
Don’t limit yourself to just stars and stripes – - – lots of things can be used to make Red, White, & Blue ornaments!!!
I purchased some red, silver, and blue round ball ornaments on clearance after Christmas just to use for my Patriotic Garland!
These were uber-easy to make following a few simple instructions and photo as guides.
- Torn Fabric Strips
- Buttons (Star, Round, Etc.)
- Christmas Ornaments (Balls, Stars, Etc.)
- Cookie Cutters
- Mini Wood Spools
- Rhinestones (Star, Round, Etc.)
- Jingle Bells
- Small US Flags
- Fabric Glue
- Paint (Glitter & Plain)
- Ornament Hangers
- Embroidery Thread
Mini Patriotic Spool Ornaments: Simply wrap empty wooden spools with torn fabric strips or ribbon and secure with glue. Add rick-rack trim. Wrap embroidery thread several times around the spool and tie off or secure with glue. Glue buttons as accents. Knot torn ribbon strips through the hanger.
Mini Button Flag Ball Ornament: Arrange four rows of mini red, white and blue buttons in the shape of a flag. Adhere to a ball ornament with white tacky glue. Knot torn ribbon strips through the hanger.
Star Button & Rhinestone Ball Ornament: Glue star buttons to a ball Christmas ornaments and then embellish the ornament further with rhinestones and tiny buttons. Knot torn ribbon strips through the hanger.

Add red and blue paint accents and allow drying time. Glue buttons in the center or the stars. Knot torn ribbon strips through the hanger.
