Directions to make the Straw Painted Fireworks Display

Let’s start by cutting the straw. Using precision scissors, fringe the end of the straw for about 1 cm on one side and 2 centimetres on the other side.

Cutting the Straw for painting

Although I’m using plastic straws in this craft, I strongly recommend using paper straws (If you are buying new ones) due to environmental concerns.  You can achieve the same effect with paper straws.

Pour some paint onto a flat plastic plate, ensuring it’s large enough to dip the straw. Dip the straw into the paint and stamp it onto a black cardstock sheet to create as many fireworks as needed.

Next, paint with another colour using the longer fringed side. This will result in a mix of fireworks in different sizes and colours.

The outcome is a stunning display of fireworks in the sky, perfect for any celebration. Leave this to dry for at least 30 mins before hanging your final Creation!

For a delightful variation, consider adding skyline silhouettes with buildings of different heights.

Cut these out from differently coloured paper—white or brown—and paste them onto a black cardstock sheet to create a captivating art piece.

This idea works beautifully for Diwali – The festival of lights!
