One last Patriotic Project

Firecracker - Firecracker… Boom… Boom… Boom! 
(Who remembers this old cheer…??)


I wanted to put one last 4th of July - Patriotic project out there. These cute little firecrackers were such a fun and quick project!

Back in early June, Pick Your Plum had this set on special for a steal (as usual), so I ordered a couple to play with. If you haven’t signed up yet with Pick Your Plum, you are missing out. So many great deals on unique products.

Since I already had the paint, scrapbooking paper, Mod Podge and twine on hand, they were super cheap to make. I was so pleased with how these little guys turned out and they were proudly displayed on my mantle.

I am sure you have seen several versions of these all over blogland. They really make a great display on a mantel, shelf or table centerpiece. You can make your own set so easy and  inexpensive!
  • Purchasing inexpensive wood (local home improvement store)
  • Cut (mine were 1.5 in diameter and ranged 5in, 6in and 7in tall)
  • Sand
  • Paint
  • Decorate
