Next school year, I'm planning on putting together a patriotic theme and doing a mock election (which I do every major election). My goal has been to make one hallway decoration a week. I'll probably use these for July 4th first, but.....it's ready to be rolled out in September, but first summer. I found a fancy free font and used this tutorial for printing on dictionary pages to print off each letter.
I added sequined stars, rick rack blah blah blah to each letter and strung them together.
