I’m SO excited to share these today because they turned out so cute! For the crafts I do with my boys I try to use items that we can find around the house. We go through a lot of paper products and I’ve been trying to save a few (without becoming a hoarder) to use on our projects.
I have a wooden firecracker decoration that I got around the time I got married (many moons ago) and it looked easy to replicate with toothpaste boxes, but I think this one turned out cuter than the original.
Once dry we tied them up with some red yarn and added some foam star stickers for decoration. I was originally going to glue some ribbon to the top for the firecracker but found some firework toothpicks that I had bought at Oriental Trading a long time ago and they worked perfectly!! We had to use a screw to get a small hole in the top and then inserted the toothpicks.
This is one kid’s craft that I am happy to display in the front room. So cute!
