I hate measuring. I know that sometimes while sewing it is mandatory, but for this project it really isn’t (hooray!) All I did was cut out one strip about the size and width I wanted and then eyeball the others from there. Personally, I think it looks better when it doesn’t seem “measured”.
Tighten slowly so you can shape your knot how you like it.
Cut and repeat!
I like to incorporate bright red and maroon into my 4th of July decor so I did the same on my banners.
Turned out pretty cute right?
Good luck with yours!
