4th of July Star Banner

Show off your love of the 4th of July holiday with a patriotic banner to decorate your front door!  These large, iron-on letters are perfect for this project - and they come in the best colors!

You will need:
Joy® Iron-on letters - U S A

Felt - red, white, blue
Decorative ribbon
Glue gun
Small paper flowers
Needle and thread/embroidery floss - red & white
Steel rule die or star pattern

1. Cut two stars from each color of felt.  Sew two together, stitching around the edges with a contrasting color of thread using blanket stitch.  Make 3 stars.


2. Following the directions on the package, iron a letter on to the front of each star then add a bow and decorative ribbon tails at the bottom of each star as shown.

3.  Cut a length of burlap or other coordinating ribbon long enough to place the stars, evenly spaced on the front then glue in place. Add a bow and small paper flower at the top.

Joy® iron-on, embroidered letters are available individually and in sheets, in a variety of fonts, sizes and colors at your local craft stores.
