Firecrackers made from straws

I love creating for pretty much every Holiday !

But I don’t like spending a fortune!

I love adding touches to my home to celebrate without breaking the bank!

These adorable little Fire Crackers are just the thing!

You can use them on your tier shelf or glue a little clip on the back and add to your seasonal tree!

You really just need a few items to create these.

Supplies needed:

• decorative paper straws

• large buttons

• wire

• twine

• raffia

• hot glue

• scissors

I found these paper straws on Amazon but I have seen them in different places … Hobby Lobby, Dollar General, Walmart any place that sells paper straws.

I loved how they were polka dots and stripes!

I’ll drop a link for the ones I got .

I cut 3 of them at different lengths .

Choose the height you want .

I had this nice large button I wanted to use for a base . It’s perfect!

Once I glued my Fire Crackers together I then glued it to the button.

Now I can set them anywhere I choose !

I got a thin flexible piece of wire and cut it the length I wanted to glue in each Fire Cracker.

I used the handle of a thin paint brush to curl them .

I cut a little piece of twine for each Fire Cracker too.

I then first glued the twine in the top hole then glued the wine .

I did this on all three !

You can trim it if it’s to long . It’s totally up to you.

For the finishing touch I wrapped a little raffia around them then added a bow !

I just love them !

Adorable, simple, quick, easy and soooo budget friendly !

These little Firecrackers are just the cutest thing!

I absolutely love how they came out!

It all starts just by using a little imagination and a few supplies!

You really can't get anymore budget friendly then this !

These are perfect to use in your tier shelf display or any spot in your home you need a little cheer!

I hope you give this fun project a try !
