Star Firecrackers

One week until Independence Day... the countdown is on!!  I have been trying to finish up my patriotic crafts all weekend.  I actually created two sets of firecrackers, and here is the first set.  

I painted up my stars, sanded the edges, and embellished with ribbon and buttons.  I used a bit of distressing ink on the white star.

I have so much fun with craft wire!  I just love the spontaneity of its twisting and turning. Here is what I did:

Now these lovely stars are brightening up my mantel!





Stars are just so happy!!  I will be showing off my second set of firecrackers later on!
Enjoy your week, my friends!!

**If you haven't noticed, I am giving my blog a bit of a facelift!  Bear with me until I get it all finished! **

    Ok, I'm not a scrapper but I keep reading about distressing ink. Guess I have to get some. Is it that much better than just a dark paint? Or is it because it's easier to apply?

    Another great project! Stop by Thursday & link it up to Fab Finds for the Fourth, please?
