A banner of flags surrounds the doorway (all with the blue canton properly placed in the upper-left corner), and 10 flags stand at attention on the swinging gate. To attach the flags to the gate, use a staple gun or drill holes in a piece of 2-by-2-inch lumber the diameter of the flag dowels, and tack it to the gate each spring or summer.
Flags sewn to a length of ribbon encircle the basket of this bike. To decorate the wheels, tape two folds of white crepe paper together into one long piece, roll it up lengthwise, twist snugly, and weave through alternating spokes; make another long twist using blue paper, and then weave it through opposite alternating spokes. Repeat with white and red paper.
