Tablecloth Fourth of July Bunting


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!
