Firework Decorations

This is the second in my quickie decorations for my party. Some will be in decorative glasses as seen above. Some will be placed in plants. I'm also making a candy table topper. It's just like the photo, but you'll add little candy bars to bamboo skewers in the same way. I've seen those in grocery stores at the flower counter.

You'll need: (all can be found at a nearby dollar store)
Red, White and Blue basket shred
floral wire (or any light wire)
BBQ Skewers

Gather shred in palm of hand piece by piece (keep the grain in one direction) Maybe 20 shred strips.
Locate center and give a half twist to mark the middle.
Wrap wired around a few times, then spin wrap to the end of skewer. Fluff out.

Pictures and medallions can be added with good old scotch tape. Happy 4th of July!
