  5. Add letters to the patriotic banner segments. You can freehand draw the letters, or print them with a printer. You can print either before you sponge paint, or after the sponge painting is completely dry.Add Letters with Sharpie Marker
  6. Pierce small holes at the top corners of each banner segment, and tie them together with string, twine, or ribbon. Add string to the first and the last segments for hanging the banner.
