These DIY Flag Fan Necklaces Celebrate American Independence Day

These American Independence Day necklaces take inspiration from popular vintage fan banners you’d see hanging out of shop windows or on street corners. You can easily recreate this necklace in under an hour using a few craft supplies you probably already have lying around your home.

To make this memorial day necklace, begin by cutting up several thick strips of white muslin cloth. Use watercolor paint to add a red, white and blue strip design onto the cloth. Once the cloth has dried, you can fold it like a paper fan and sew either ends onto a black ribbon. The necklace looks best with three fan flags sewn along the ribbon all in a row but feel free to customize the necklace however you wish!
