I love everything about the 4th of July! The parades, the picnics, and especially the fireworks. If you’re having a 4th of July party this year, these firecracker skewers will make a festive addition to your table!
To make the firecracker skewers, you just need a few inexpensive supplies:
Corks (you can save used wine corks or purchase a bag from the craft store. I bought a pack of 30 corks at JoAnn’s with a 40% off coupon for $6)
Red, white & blue paper (my scrapbook paper is also from JoAnn’s)
Scissors and Glue
Make sure your cork has a hole big enough to fit the skewer. If you’re using old wine corks, there’s probably already a hole from the corkscrew. If you purchased new corks, just use a sharp, pointy object to create a hole. I used an awl, but a pair of scissors would probably work too.
Put a dab of glue (I used hot glue) in the hole of the cork and stick the blunt end of the skewer into the cork. Next, cut a piece of scrapbook paper large enough to wrap around the cork, then wrap and glue the paper to the cork.
Cut a 1″ diameter circle out of another piece of paper. Then cut a slit halfway through the middle of the circle. Overlap the edges a bit to form a cone and glue it together.
Attach the cone to the top of the cork (I used hot glue for this part too) and you’re ready to party!
Enjoy!! ~ Amy
