Items you will need:
- 1 4×4 wood piece
- Red Acrylic Paint
- Blue Acrylic Paint
- White Acrylic Paint
- Lace Ribbon
- Red Twine
- Glue Gun
- Glue Stick
- Red Glitter
I cut my wood into 3 pieces. I wanted them all 3 different sizes. This piece of wood was already pretty smooth so I only hand sanded the edges where it was rough from the saw.
I painted them each a different color.
I wanted to paint stripes, polka dots, and a star on my firecrackers. So first I hand painted circles which was pretty easy to do without a stencil just because they were so little.
This was after the first coat before I cleaned up lines. I did a total of 3 paint coats. It took a little bit to make sure everything was completely even. If you are worried about lines being straight a little hack I do sometimes with crafts is using painters tape.
I painted a star on the other firecracker.
I covered the star with red glitter when the paint was still wet. That makes for 1 less step it you put glitter on when the paint is still wet instead of waiting until it’s dry and then using mod podge to get it to stick.
Here they are after all the painting was complete.
I hand sanded the edges and the stripes I wanted it to look a bit Rustic.
I cut 3 small pieces of rope each about 2 inches long.
I hot glued each one on the top of the fire cracker.
I tied them all together using Lace ribbon and Red twine. I think it looks cute, and love the way they turned out.
