DIY Small Firecracker Decoration

Today I am showing you how I made these cute little firecrackers!
Pin It   

I was inspired by my own project. Last year I showed you this one that I made out of 2x4's.
View that tutorial here!

 

First I got some scrap peices of 1x2's.  I cut them at various lengths.  Then I painted them red, white, and blue with acrylic paint. I sanded the edges all the way around, and then put stain over the entire block.

I got the drill and used a bit the same size as my wire to drill holes in the top of each 1x2.

I used Gorilla Wood Glue to put them together.
 
I wrapped pieces of wire around a pencil to make them curly, and then shoved them down into the pre-drilled holes.  I stacked them two diferent ways and some got a star around them and some didn't.

I LOVE how they turned out. Nice size, made from scraps, and so cute!
