  DESCRIPTION     Chain of paper stars for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July  
  DETAILS     These make cool decorations for memorial day or fourth of July festivities. Make them as long as you need, hang them, or use them as a table decoration. Use the star template we have provided, print, and go to work decorating your stars. We printed the flags from the paper hat templates and cut them up to paste designs on our stars, but do what suits your creative fancy, crayons and markers can be effective too. I happened to have a roll of red, white and blue ribbon left over from another project, but you can use string, yarn or whatever ribbon you might have on hand. Be sure to leave some streamers at either end, it's more decorative. You could glue your stars to your ribbon, or fold one of the points over the ribbons edge and affix it with masking tape. We decided to staple ours, it made the stars more secure and the staples were hardly noticeable.
