I just got my 4th of July decorations down from the attic and I’ve been busy working on plans for our 4th of July party.
I remember seeing these 2×2 wooden firecrackers around blogland last year, but I never got around to making them. Then I saw Nap Time Crafts post with hers and decided I would go dig through my wood stash to make my own. I didn’t take step-by-step pics, but these are super simple to make.
I used 2×2 scraps of wood I had left over. I cut them 7″, 6″ and 4.5″. I painted them red, white and blue with paint I had on hand. I used a combination of vinyl, stickers, ribbon and sparkly stars to decorate them.
Then I drilled a small hole in the top; cut and wrapped wire to create the fuse (I originally had them straight, but they didn’t stand out like I wanted them to so I made them curly-q.)
I made 2 sets because my sister keeps giving me a hard time when I make stuff and don’t make anything for her.
