Flag Firecrackers

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!
