Happy Fourth of July weekend! I wanted to swing by the blog and share this super easy and affordable dollar store plastic tablecloth bunting with all of you!
I very much wanted to decorate our deck. However, waiting until the last minute left me with limited options and the decor that was left seemed to be more than I was willing to spend.
Enter plastic tablecloths and zip ties!
I spent $9.00 for this quick and easy decor idea – the zip ties I had on hand, but if you get a variety pack like the one below you’ll find yourself using them for so many projects, I promise!
The kids and I set out the tablecloths like so…
I wanted the long rectangular ones for this project.
We then folded the tablecloths in half…
Set them one top of each other – red on top, white, then blue on the bottom…
We zip tied the center…
We used the 8 inch zip ties for the center.
Then we zip tied the ends with just a little bit of tablecloth left out. Also, if you look closely I pulled the red tighter than the white and the white tighter than the blue so that when it was displayed all the colors would show.
(Ignore my ferns – there’s a nest in the first one and I don’t dare water it!)
The kids cuts off the excess zip ties and I zhuzhed it up to make it a little wider and prettier!
That’s it! I have a feeling I’ll be making these in the future for all sorts of occasions! I’d love to hear and see if you give it a try!
Stay safe and as always, thanks for following along!
