  • [easyazon_link identifier=”B0167TLZ42″ locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]Black Rope[/easyazon_link]
  • [easyazon_link identifier=”B0000C0CJQ” locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]Avery Sticker Paper[/easyazon_link] (optional)
  • [easyazon_link identifier=”B003H0G1J4″ locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]Star Punch[/easyazon_link] (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

The directions are very basic and simple. All you need to do is choose a 4th of July firecracker craft design and paint it.

If you use a Nestle container or something else with a dark graphic I recommend painting on a couple coats of primer (or just white paint) first.

You can paint on stars or if you have a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00FC1BCWW” locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]star punch[/easyazon_link] do like we did and punch out white sticker paper and attach the sticker stars.

Now that your design is painted and dry you can drill a hole in the top of the container lid (paint it if you need to as well) and then slide your rope through the hole. We just tied a knot on one end so that it wouldn’t go all the way through but you could also hot glue that part if you needed to.

Also to note, we used a [easyazon_link identifier=”B000EMBEY0″ locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]wood burner[/easyazon_link] to melt the edges of the rope so that it would not fray. You could also do this with a lighter. Just don’t allow your kids to do this step.
