1. Wrap cardboard tube in self-adhesive red glitter craft foam. Overlap 1/2" and trim edge with pinking shears. Glue overlapping end and secure with pins until dry. Cut a circle the diameter of the end of the tube, punch a small hole at the top and insert a 4" silver chenille stem. Glue to the top of the cylinder.

2. Cut an irregular 6-pointed star from self-adhesive silver glitter paper. Cut a mirror image of the star and attach both to the dynamite tube with the chenille stem between the layers.

3. Attach letters to spell “BANG!”; position over a painted stem wire.

4. Insert into Patriotic Flowers arrangement.

1. Cut a 3"x5" rectangle of self-adhesive red glitter craft foam. Peel off backing paper place in front of you on work surface.

2. Lay the end of a painted stem wire at the edge of the craft foam, so that it serves as a “form” but is not visible once the fire cracker is rolled.

3. Before rolling, lay a chenille stem inside craft foam, protruding from the end like a fuse. Roll up and trim the end with pinking shears. Secure with glue and straight pins until dry.

4. Insert into Patriotic Flowers arrangement.
