With just a few simple steps, we'll craft a homemade firework display that will be the centerpiece of your patriotic holiday decorations.
Tools and Materials
1. Preparing the Solar Lights
Start with two solar lights and twist off the tops. They should come off easily.
Next, grab a red Sharpie and color in the plastic top.
Repeat the same process with a blue Sharpie and then replace the caps.
This coloring effect is permanent and allows light to pass through the plastic.
2. Cutting and Clustering the Pool Noodles
Use a craft knife to cut red and blue noodles down to size.
Aim for about six different lengths of pool noodles in various sizes.
Cluster the pool noodles together, ensuring they look visually appealing.
3. Securing the Pool Noodle Cluster
Use a small amount of hot glue to stick the pool noodles together.
Additionally, tie them up with a piece of ribbon for both a decorative and secure touch.
4. Creating a Planter Base
Choose a red plastic pot, you can usually find these at a Dollar store. Fill the pot with packing paper to create a stable base.
5. Assembling the Firework Craft
Place the pool noodle cluster in the red plastic pot.
Insert the solar lights into the center of two noodles, ensuring a snug fit.
Use the remaining pool noodle sections to hold a few red and white florals.
6. Decorating the Homemade Firework Display
Add a stunning glittery red, white, and blue bow to the front of the arrangement.
Hot glue foam stars to the pool noodles.
