Red, White, & BBQ – A 4th of July Banner

Red, White, & BBQ – A 4th of July Banner

May 3, 2019 1 By The Ribbon Roll

Summer and barbecues are around the corner! Want to know a fun way to decorate for those summer get-togethers? Watch my video below on how to make a ribbon banner.


• 2 ½” Stars Velvet

• 2 ½” Natural Stripe Linen

• 2 ½” Linen Stars and Stripes

• 4” Burlap

• 1/8” Jute Cord

• Handy dandy glue gun and scissors

Step 1: Cut burlap in 12” long pieces.

Step 2: Cut the 2 ½” patterned ribbon in 10” long pieces.

Step 3: Fold the pieces in half, then cut ends to banner style pieces.

Step 4: For this project, I used nine pieces of burlap and three pieces of each patterned 10” ribbon.

Step 5: Cut two 8” pieces of each patterned ribbon for a total of six pieces.

Step 6: Glue the folded burlap onto the cord.

Step 7: Glue the 10” patterned ribbon on the burlap

Step 8: Repeat Steps 6 and 7, alternating the burlap/ribbon pieces with 8” ribbon pieces until you get the length of the banner you want. 

This project was inspired by the 4th of July, but you can easily re-create this banner for any occasion! I can’t wait to see what you make.
