DIY Wooden Patriotic "Firecrackers"


These fun and colorful (and safe!) wooden firecrackers can be made in 7 easy steps, cost less than $5 to make and are a great addition to your summer table or mantle.
Glue 3 wooden blocks together, paint, add patriotic craft paper, and a kids' sparkler for easy, frugal, and fun patriotic summer decor! Would look great on a 4th of July table.
