  1. Cut 3 scalloped circles and 3 circles from patterned paper. The circles should be slightly smaller than the 3 scalloped circles. These scalloped circles are about 6 3/4”, but you can cut any size that fits your space.

  2. Use Glue Dots® Ultra-Thin Dots  to attach the circles to the scalloped circles. Then, use a paper cutter to cut each assembled circle in half (it’s okay if it’s not perfectly in half).

  3. Cut “1776” from patterned paper or use pre-cut number embellishments. Use Glue Dots® Pop-Up Dots to attach “1776” to the half circles.

We sized it to fit a picture window in the family room, but you can size down to hang it on your front door, or size up to hang it on a bannister. Make the banner longer by choosing a word like liberty, freedom, or fireworks instead of 1776. Happy 4th everyone!
