If you're looking to add something new to your holiday decor but don't want to spend much money, try these wooden firecrackers! They make an easy and fun summer accent for shelves or side tables. You could even make larger versions for the front porch.
Start out with different lengths of wood. I used ripped 2X4's, but 2X2's would even work better.
Paint them different colors.
Decorate with vinyl or paint
and hammer in a piece of twine or rope.
I cut a few pieces off of an old lanyard.
I found that if I folded the very bottom of the string, it would stand up more easily.
Hopefully not too much of a throw back to Rice Krispies:)
It's really an easy breezy project that you can whip up quickly and it's kid friendly if little hands want in on the action! If your kids are small and you don't want them hammering, you can use golf tees or wrap yarn around screws and glue them to the top of the block.
