Even though July 4th is Sunday, there is plenty of time to create an easy way to welcome your guests.
These streamers create gentle movement in the breeze and are made from items found at the Dollar Tree.
The poles are actually bamboo stakes normally used in gardening. These are green 5 ft stakes and are $1 for a package of 6 or so. Spray paint those the color of your choice. I used white.
Right now, most Dollar Tree stores have rolls of satin ribbon in stock. I chose red, white and blue. $1 per roll. Cut long pieces of each color and hot glue one end to the top of the stake.
These can be placed anywhere... line your driveway, place them at the corners of your patio, stand them up in sand filled pots on your porch, etc. Use any colors you want for any occasion. These would be great for a bridal shower, graduation in school colors or child's birthday in primary colors!
