Firecracker centerpiece kid’s craft
First, start with a toilet paper roll, and then take a piece of double-stick tape and lay that across the length of the roll. And I’m going to do the same thing on the other side. Then, I’m going to add one more piece of tape
Now, take a piece of red Bowdabra Scrunchie Ribbon. Starting at the bottom roll the toilet paper roll on the scrunchie ribbon. Then, add one more piece of double-stick tape to the end to securely cover the roll. Then I’m just going to tuck this in. And just take a little piece of tape and just tape that down inside.
Now attach the cute stars and letters down the side of the roll. Set the firecracker aside.
Make the bow
Using the Mini Bowdabra, take some silver Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half. Then, just slip that into the Mini Bowdabra.
Now, take my red Scrunchie Ribbon and scrunch into the Bowdabra. Next, use these stars that we just clipped from a garland, and lay those down into my Bowdabra. Next, to take the silver Bowdabra Scrunchie Ribbon and scrunch down into the Bowdabra.
Use the Bowdabra wand and just really scrunch everything in. Now, add the third start. We just took two of these stars and put a glue dot in between. Then, glued it to the Bowdabra Bow Wire so that it would be easy to stick into the Mini Bowdabra.
Now, going to scrunch everything down. Then take the Bowdabra Bow Wire Bowdabra and pull the two ends through my slipknot. Next, pull it really tight while it’s still in the Bowdabra.
Finally, pull it out, separate the ends, and just bring this around to the back and tie it off. Clip all of the ends here. Take the bow and just kind of stick that so the stars come out.
You have this really cute little bang firecracker kid’s craft. It’s great for any holiday that’s patriotic. If you use different colors, you could use it for New Year’s. And it’s a great craft you can do with your children.
