4th of July firecrackers {tutorial}

Happy Monday!  I’m over at Lil’ Luna today so you can pop over {HERE } &

I know you have seen these cute little firecrackers all over blogland!
I was actually inspired by a set I saw over on Pick Your Plum a few weeks ago!
I wasn’t quick enough to get a set so I did the next best thing…I made my own!

You’ll need: 3 blocks {all 1x1 inch cubed} 7 in, 5 in & 3 inches tall
red, white & blue paint, wire, washi tape, glitter paint, wood stars from Plaid, raffia

fireworks tutorial1. After I painted my blocks, I drilled a small hole in the top just big enough for my wire to fit into.
2. Then I put some washi tape {from Pick Your Plum} around the top of each block.
3. Put the wire in the hole & curled it with a pencil.
4. Then I painted the stars.  I used some glitter paint from Folk Art.
5.  Then I just used a little piece of washi tape to stick my star on the top of the wire.
6.  Then I tied a raffia bow around the top…just under the washi tape.  That’s it!
