  1. Paint the wooden banners red and allow to dry.
  2. Attach the adhesive letters in the middle of the red wooden banners and set aside.
  3. Draw a star on the cardstock. Cut it out and glue to the remaining red wooden banner and set aside.
  4. Iron the interfacing on the back of the dark blue patriotic fabric to make the fabric stiff.
  5. To make the fabric banner behind the wooden banner draw around one wooden banner on the cardboard.  Measure out 1” from the side edges and the bottom and draw a line to make a banner shaped cardboard pattern larger than the wooden banner.
  6. Use the cardboard pattern to trace around the interfaced side of the dark blue print.  Draw six and cut out.
  7. Lay each wooden banner on top of each fabric banner.  Make a dot where holes need to be cut at the top for the jute.  Carefully cut out the holes.
  8. Lay the banners out on a table and space them apart to determine the length of the jute needed, adding 24” on each end for hanging.
  9. String the jute through each set of banners making sure to leave about 4“ in between each letter for the tassels.
  10. Using the patriotic fabric, tear strips about 2” in width,  4-6 strips for each tassel.
  11. Bunch the strips together in the middle to determine the length of the tassels.
  12. Fold the strips over the jute in between each letter and tie them on at the top using the white ribbon making a total of 7 tassels
