DIY Thursday: Fireworks Craft

Hey everyone it's Tiffany! So I saw a craft similar to this at Wood Creations. I got my inspiration for this craft from them, I just changed a few things. I figured I could make a similar craft for a lot less money!

What you need:
12 inch 2x4
10 inch 2x4
8 inch 2x4
scrapbook paper
mod podge
chipboard or wood stars
scrapbook lettering or vinyl lettering
glitter (optional)

Step 1: Drill a hole in the center in the top of the blocks, sand and paint your blocks-one red, white, and blue

Step 2: Paint your stars. I did them white and then put silver glitter on them

Step 3: Cut out your paper and mod podge it onto the wood. Make sure to put a thin coat of mod podge over the top of the paper to seal it

 Step 4: Add your lettering to the stars and go over them with a thin coat of mod podge

Step 5: Curl the wire around a pencil or foam brush. You want nine curled pieces anywhere around 1-2 inches long

Step 6: Hot glue three wire pieces in the top of each block of wood

Step 7: Punch a hole in the stars and the wrap wire the wood, threading the star onto the wire. Curl the ends and wallah, you now have your cute firework craft!
