How To Make A Patriotic Ribbon Flag Decoration

Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

The unofficial kick-off to Summer is right around the corner! Time to plan those Summer parties! Here is a fun way to add a little red, white, & blue to your festivites. 

Patriotic Ribbon Flag

This project is easy and inexpensive, and it's a great way to get your kids involved in the fun.

Supplies I Used: – 2 pre-packaged ribbon trim bundles  – 24" flag dowel (I slid off the little flag) – Denim scrap fabric – Fabric glue – Star ornament 


Tie The Ribbon 

All you have to do is tie the ribbons onto the dowel! Just a simple knot.  Continue across.


Keep Close Together

Tying ribbons right next to each other. It doesn't take long! This is a pretty quick project!   .


Fill Dowel w Ribbon

It took about 100 pieces of ribbon to fill up the 24-inch dowel.

If you don't have any pre-packaged ribbon trim bundles, you can use any ribbon you like.


To make the union patch in the left corner I cut a square of old denim fabric & hung a star ornament.

I did a quick trim across the bottom of the flag to make the ribbons even.
