Added bonus: if you're like me and will camping this long weekend, our car will be PACKED so having a small way to celebrate Canada is definitely right on the mark.
Supplies: Balsa wood circles (diameter 1 1/4" and 3/4"), red acrylic paint, paintbrush, scissors, hot glue gun, various red and white ribbon, small safety pins.
Step 1: Cut ribbon length as desired.
Step 2: Put a small dab of hot glue on the ribbon and fold closed, pinching at the glued spot.
Step 3: Hot glue the balsa wood circle onto the ribbon.
Step 4: Attach the safety pin onto the back of the ribbon using hot glue.
Step 5: Paint a maple leaf onto the circle. You could also use small maple leaf stamp instead.
And that's all there is to it! Pin one or more onto your shirt - bonus points if you're wearing a Canadian tuxedo! Alternatively, you could leave off the safety pins, string the ribbons onto a piece of string and hang as decoration.
