I promised myself last year, that I would finish my Fourth of July porch decor and believe it or not, I did!! This banner was on the top of my list, it just screams patriotic!

Supplies Needed For American Flag Burlap Banner…

American flags {these came in a 3 pack in the Target dollar spot!}
Burlap fabric
Jute Twine
Sewing machine and thread

 I had snatched up the American flags when all the Fourth of July decorations went on clearance the previous year and I stored them away,with every intention of making this banner way before the 4th of July last year!! I actually had it done with a few days to spare!

My front porch is rather large, so I made four individual banners and tied two together on each side. Each banner has 6 flags sewn with a simple zig-zag stitch onto burlap rectangles. I then attached each rectangle to jute twine by simply folding the burlap over the twine and stitching in place!

I love the simplicity of this banner ! It alone would have made a beautiful porch, but instead I added a few other patriotic touches….
