Step-by-step instructions on making these Sparklers Craft
Begin by breaking the skewers in half, creating small 15 cm sparklers.
Next, take three small rectangular pieces of crepe paper in yellow and orange, each measuring approximately 3cm x 10cm.
Ensure that you cut the crepe sheets with the longer side aligned parallel to the stripes of the crepe paper. This arrangement will result in a firmer sparkler.
Place these pieces on top of each other and then begin making small 2mm cuts along one of the shorter sides, being careful not to cut through the entire length. This will create a beautiful fringe, as depicted in the image.
This is an excellent way for kids to practice their scissors skills.
Afterwards, glue these crepe paper pieces together and then affix them to one end of the skewers, rolling them tightly. Proceed to glue the other end of the paper as well.
Allow it to dry for a while, and then spread out the fringes.
Take a Rectangular piece of black Construction paper, approximately 3 cm x 12 cm. Apply white glue and wrap it around the stick.
Leave it to dry, and your sparklers are all set to light up the night!
Once your Sparkler firework is complete, you can use it to decorate your space, or even give it away as a gift with a card.
These make charming presents for children and are perfect for playful moments.
