I love decorating my home for the 4th of July red white and blue will give any room a pop of color. So today I made a set of wood firecrackers for my patriotic collection.
Time: 2 HoursCost: $20Difficulty: Easy
What You'll need:
Red 3m tape
White vinyl stars 6
1" Drill Bit
Start by cutting 3 pieces of your 4x4 post 30" tallest 22" medium 16" smallest this will give you your 3 sizes of firecrackers.
After the white has dried, you'll measure down from the top. On the tallest firecracker I did 9", 7" on the medium and 5" on the smallest. Put a line on all 4 sides.
Now your ready to take them outside and spray the navy paint. Make sure to spray the top also. I used a piece of paper to make sure no over spray went onto my white.
Next you'll grab your red 3M tape, you'll find this in paint department in the hardware store. Place at the bottom/edge of the navy paint and in the middle of the 4x4 post and run it vertical (up and down) along all 4 sides.
Now you can see all my red tape is on. To cover up the lines use the raffia and tie around the navy edge.
You'll fine your smoothest side and apply the white vinyl stars. I did 3 on the largest, 2 on medium and 1 on smallest firecracker. I only did it on one side, which is the side that will face forward.
My firecrackers are done! They will be so cute on my porch for the patriotic holidays. Did you know there are more patriotic holidays then any other holiday. Labor Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Flag Day. Independence Day, Constitution Day, Election Day, Veterans Day, Bill or Rights Day.
