With the 4th of July around the corner, I’m thinking of what kind of craft I could do with my kids.
I am not crafty. Cutting and gluing is about as much as I can do.
In searching for crafts online, I found an easy craft I think I can do that still looks fun and festive.
Here’s what you will need:
- Wired star garland in various colors (available at craft and party stores)
- Duct tape
- Small jingle bells
- For each, cut the wired star garland into nine pieces, each 6 to 8 inches long.
- Trim the tinsel stars from the last inch of each piece. Line up the trimmed ends on the sticky side of a 1-1/2-inch length of duct tape. Leave 1/2 inch of tape free on each side, as shown.
- Wrap the tape around the top of a pen. Slide small jingle bells onto the ends of the garland lengths, bending the tips around the bell loops to secure them. Splay the garland to resemble exploding fireworks.
I found this craft on the FamilyFun website.
