Ready to make these patriotic party ornaments? Keep reading for the how-to.
How to Make It:
1. First, draw a star to use as a tracer. Cut that out and use it to draw stars on the paper bags.
2. Carefully cut out as many stars as you'll need, depending on how long you'd like the garland to be.
3. Take two cups of blueberries with equal parts water and heat the mixture until it boils. Let it bubble away until the mixture is reduced. After allowing it time to cool, dip the stars in the mixture.
4. Once dry, thread the straws onto the string. A Subtle Revelry has a great secret technique.
