Want a Fourth of July craft
that you can do with kids? This festive bunting idea, designed by Jessica Wilson of Craft Magazine
, nicely fits the bill. What's even better about it is that it's made from common household and crafty materials: Cupcake materials, party streamers, paper and acrylic paint. Here's what the finished product looks like....
The flags are made by painting stripes on pieces of poster board, card stock, or any other stiff paper. To get perfect stripes, Jessica recommends aligning painter's tape on top of the paper, then painting. The tape is low-tack, so it won't peel away paper when you take it off.
