This is a very nice bunting design, and is different from what you usually see. One advantage of the felt design is that it is heavier than most fabric and of course paper buntings, so it wouldn't be b,owing in the wind! I could see adapting the size of this garland to fit your porch or railing. Add a few bits of glitter or sparkle rhinestones for some sparkle and flair along the edge or in star shapes. A fun and patriotic project!
