No Spark-Sparklers!

4th of July Craft for your family

By Kyetra Belton-Palm Coast/Bunnell/Flagler Beach Macaroni Publisher June 29, 2011

These are even a great option for children that are afraid of fire or too small to have it.  And of course - those of us that are having a firework ban due to wildfires!  It doesn't mean we can't have sparklers!

You Will Need:

Small wooden dowels about 14 inches long

Wired star garland in solid or multiple colors

Clear packing tape

Red or blue card stock cut to 2 in by 1 1/2 in

Glue or glue dots

Scissors

 

For each sparkler that you make, cut wire garland into 10 pieces.  Make 5 each of 6 in long and 8 in long.

Trim off the stars from the bottom of each piece about inch up.  Line the pieces up on the cardstock and tape down.

 

Then add glue dots to the dowel at the top where the paper will attach.  Attach the edge to the dowel and roll the remaining paper and wire around the dowel.  Secure the end with more glue or glue dots. 

Once secure, arrange the  wire garland to look like a sparkler.  Enjoy!
