Giant Grocery Bag Paper Stars

We originally made giant paper bag stars with lunch bags. But we wanted to go even bigger for the 4th of July and reuse all of the grocery bags sitting in our kitchen. You could easily mix and match both kinds of paper bag stars with different colors, but we went for the classic red, white, and blue for Independence Day. Note: this post contains affiliate links.

These are a no cost decor option! Make them in red, white, and blue for perfect July 4th decor.

How To Make Giant Grocery Bag Stars

Begin by removing the handles from your grocery bags and turn all the bags in the same direction.

Use your hot glue gun to glue a T-shape on each bag and stack them together. Glue a final T-shape on the last bag and pull it together like you are making a fan. Secure the star with glue!

I punched little holes into my bags and hung them with fishing wire so they look like they are floating. I love the way they look lined up across the front of the house.
