Cue the music, unfurl Old Glory, and get ready to cheer, “U-S-A! U-S-A!” Yes, it is the year of the Games…Olympic, that is. So, to celebrate and cheer on our Team America in London, this weekend’s DIY project shows us how we can set the stage at home with our very own, hand-made Olympic rings. For mere dollars and cents, you can create this fun and easy-to-make wall feature to display throughout the games or for an Olympic themed summer party (see below for print-yourself invites and accessories!). I would like to dedicate this blog to my wonderful teammate and friend, Greg Louganis, who will be supporting the USA athletes as a mentor in London. Go USA!

Here’s what you’ll need:
