In case you didn't get enough firecrackers yesterday, here is the second set I made! I was truly inspired by the firecrackers I saw on Amber Packer. (via UCreate, of course!) I love her stars and stripes! I realized that I could really make mine look like a flag!
Can I just tell you how much I love Home Depot?! My local Home Depot knows me pretty well by now, and they are so good to me. I bought an insanely long piece of wood that was somewhere around 3.25 x 2 feet... it was only $1.87. SCORE! I had plenty of wood left over for future projects, too. I had 3 pieces cut-- 6 inch, 10 inch, and 14 inch pieces.
After painting my wood white and sanding it down, here is what I did:
Now for embellishing!! How about some stars?
And a few stripes:
I used the same methods from yesterday's firecrackers to add a bit of wire to each one.
I tied it all together with some twine. I think it adds a nice rustic touch!
I must say, I absolutely adore my star firecrackers, but I am loving these ones even more!! On Saturday, my hubby took Little Man to Costco for the morning (definitely their favorite spot!) so I had a couple of hours to work on these guys. Thanks, babe!
