CELEBRATION - Felt Garland in Red White and Blue - Approx 10ft - Patriotic / Fourth of July / Photo Prop. $15.75, via Etsy.
Sewn Paper Garland - Punch out a stack of stars from different patterned papers. Randomly arrange and rearrange stars on a large table. Run each star through the sewing machine. Grab a few at a time, so you aren't constantly stopping and starting your machine. Also sew towards a point, not from one, in case the point would get caught or bend. It takes less than 10 minutes.
