Since the 4th of July is this weekend, I have a split-second DIY for you! It’s just a simple printable, but it would be super fun at your 4th of July celebrations if you’re a sparkler-kind-of-person. And let’s be real, I think anybody reading this here blog is a sparkler-kind-of-person. This is so easy!
Make Time: 30 Minutes
Okay! So here’s the printable — just download it, and I’d recommend taking it to an office supply store to print it. It’ll need to be printed on 11×17 paper, and it’s best if the paper has a good weight to it. I printed at Office Depot on 100 lb paper and I was in and out in about 5 minutes.
Once you have the paper printed, cut out each sparkler pack.
Use a ruler and a craft knife to make two small horizontal slits in the center of each pack.
Slide your sparklers in and you’re ready to party!
Obviously we had to go outside at night and take some crazy sparkler photos, duh. I think these little packs would be so cute set out during fireworks time at your 4th of July bash. Heck, use ’em at any party! And I have to say it — any time you’re lighting up a sparkler, just use caution. I remember one 4th of July when I was about 8, my sweater caught on fire and my uncle grabbed me and spit on my sleeve to put it out before I even realized what happened. So don’t catch anything on fire unless you want your uncle to spit on you. Or something. Have fun! xoxo
