Making Fourth of July Fireworks


“I’m constantly trying to find ways to go the extra mile without breaking the bank. I think these Fourth of July firework picks do just that. These will add a patriotic flair to any celebration. You can make them in just a few easy steps and all you need is red, white and blue crepe paper, Aleene’s tacky glue, toothpicks/skewers and scissors.” – Mark
