Star Spangled Garland DIY

Can you believe it is almost the 4th of July?  Not that I'm complaining-- a holiday that is celebrated at the beach with some hot dogs and fireworks?  Count me in!  There is also no holiday more patriotic than Independence day, so I like to play up the red, white, and blue as much as possible.  This star garland is super easy to make and the stars could be used for other decor as well.  Interested? Follow the steps below to make your own!

^^I liked the mirror finish of the wrapping paper, but it didn't hold its shape outside as sturdy as the card stock stars did--be warned!^^


^^I watched this youtube tutorial to learn how!^^

^^This is what happens when you are folding stars for too long!^^

Easy right?  I hope this makes your celebration more festive!
