Easy to Make American Flag Garland

Here's a quick and easy project for your summer morning.

I'm using small flags from a recent neighborhood parade but I am including my affiliate links so you can create the look yourself. 

I removed the sticks and folded over the edge. 

A flap is created with a quick burst of steam from the iron.

The free flags and a few supplies I had around the house were all I needed to create this quick and easy summer holiday garland.

I stretched out a long length of jute down my farmhouse table while I waited for the glue gun to heat up.

I hot glued the flags onto the jute at the fold then added muslin white flags between each American flag. 

On each white flag I added a DIY aged mini clothespin.
