All you’ll need to create the garland is a red and blue bandana (we used THESE ones), a pair of scissors, and ten minutes!

 HOW TO:

1. Cut bandanas into quarters.

2. Cut each bandana quarter into two triangles to create 8 bunting pieces.

3. Tie corners of bunting together, alternating red and blue.
