For a nice nod to the American flag on the Fourth of July, add a star-shaped ribbon pin to your clothes, bag, or sun hat. Choose ribbon that’s not too flimsy in the desired width (the thinner the ribbon, the smaller the star will be). For a large star, cut a 30-inch length of ribbon; for a tiny one, no more than a foot.
- Ribbon, such as grosgrain
- Pin backs, 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, or 1 inch, depending on desired star size (available at crafts stores)
- Hot-glue gun
