DIRECTIONS:

RED/WHITE/BLUE WITH STAR CONFETTI FIRECRACKERS

  1. Hydrate AquaGems per package directions. Keep colors in separate containers. Fill 1/3 of the vases with Sapphire AquaGems to decide how many are needed for bottom layer. Remove from vases and put back in bowl. Measure same amount in Ruby and Pearl, still keeping them separate.
  2. Use your hands to add and mix star confetti into each color -- silver stars with Sapphire, red stars with Pearl, blues stars with Ruby.
  3. Layer AquaGems mixture: Sapphire, Pearl, Ruby. Push pipe cleaner into AquaGems, leaving 2-3" exposed.

RED/WHITE/BLUE FIRECRACKER

  1. Hydrate AquaGems per package directions. Keep colors in separate containers. Start layering bottom with Ruby, then Pearl, then Sapphire. Repeat to the top of the vase. Option: tilt vase during layering for slanted effect. Push pipe cleaner into AquaGems, leaving 2-3" exposed.

JACK-O'-LANTERN:

  1. Hydrate AquaGems per package directions.
  2. Cut foam shapes for a jack-o'-lantern face. Adhere to the bowl.
  3. Fill the bowl with the hydrated AquaGems.
  4. Turn on the BrightSpots and push them down into the AquaGems. Tie wire around stems of silk leaves and push the stems down into AquaGems. Note: After Halloween, allow the AquaGems to dehydrate and save them. Next Halloween, add water to rehydrate them and re-create the same arrangement. This can be repeated for many years.
