Kick of the summer with a fun and festive Memorial Day Barbecue including great party decor like this colorful sun decoration. This sun design is so easy to create with just a few inexpensive materials. I reused cardboard and different patterns of scrapbooking paper to create this happy face sun. You can hang it on a wall, or attach it to a skewer and put in a planter.

Instructions to Make the Festive Sun Decoration
Print out the Fun Sun Pattern and cut out all of the pieces.
Arrange the pieces on a piece of cardboard and trace the design. Alternate the large and smaller sun rays as shown.
You can also attach a wooden skewer to the to the back of the sun and place in a planter like I did here for my Luau TV Segment. If you make the Sun Design, send me a picture. I would love to see it and post it on my blog!
