How to Make It

For one firework you will need six chenille stems in the same color.

1. Cut the stems in half.

2. Dip approximately 1/2 inch of both ends of each stem in crafts glue, then submerge tips in a small bowls of colored glitter. Lay the stems on a thick sponge to dry.

3. Gather 11 stems together into a pile. Twist the 12th stem around the others. Bend and flare the stems to resemble a firework.

4. Tie a length of thin clear thread onto the firework and hang (optional).
