    • Hang both ends of the banner by tying them to objects such as two posts on a fence, or by taping the ends of the twine to a wall.
    • After the twine has been hung space the cut flags so that they are equally spaced.
    • After your 4th of July celebrations you can take down the banner and stack the flags on top of each other and wrap the excess twine around the cut flags to store your banner for the following 4th of July.
