These are a simple and easy centerpiece to make. The directions to these are also listed under Tissue Paper Mums but with a couple of different steps.
- Crape paper or computer paper or construction paper or tissue paper. I found crape paper or tissue paper is easiest to work with.
- Skewers (I found a package of 100 for a $1 at the dollar store.)
I folded the paper into thirds for easier and faster cutting. If your child is cutting I recommend that you don’t fold it. Cut thin (about 1/8 inch) strips about 1/4 inch from edge. I drew a line for Boo so she would know where to stop cutting.
Fluff out the firework with your fingers to make it look like it is “exploding”.
Place in a bottle filled with sand or marbles and place in the table.
Now, go watch some real fireworks explode and enjoy your 4th!
Happy Fourth of July!
