I’m Leanna. This blog was born out of the chaos of mommin’ hard all day everyday while tackling little projects along the way! I hope you can find some easy DIY inspiration, family friendly recipes, and some other fun things to make your day while you are here.
While searching for some easy DIY 4th of July decor, I came across so many cute American flags made out of ribbon and fabric. I really haven’t decorated for the 4th of July in previous years, but thought since we are all stuck at home.. why not?? This american ribbon flag is a quick and easy DIY that you can hang outside or inside for the little touch of patriotic decor!
I started out with just using ribbon to make this flag but I soon learned that ribbon was very pricey. To cut down the cost, decided to add in fabric. If I would do this again, I would have used a lot more fabric and less ribbon.
Add in different textures of ribbon to create a beautiful flag! I used lace, pom pom, burlap and more! The ideas are really endless and you can’t mess it up!
If you decided to make a DIY American ribbon flag make sure to tag me on instagram @lifebyleanna so I can see it! I love when you share what you have made!
Later this week I’ll be sharing more on this 4th of July outdoor tablescape with and easy and healthy patriotic dessert.
