Wooden Firecrackers

I'm back today with another 4th of July decor DIY.  This time I made some WOODEN FIRECRACKERS.  I combined this idea and this idea that I saw on Pinterest. 
I cut my wood to length.  I didn't measure.  Just cut a 2x4 in half length-wise and then made each piece shorter than the first.  Then I painted them to coordinate with the wooden star blocks I showed you yesterday.  I also sanded the edges to give it a distressed/rustic look.

I used some twine and a metal hanger to add some details.  I cut off a few inches of the hanger and had my son twist it into to a curly Q.  

Then I drilled some holes in the top of each block and stuck in the metal curly Q.

Isn't that just so cute?

I love how these turned out.

And the fact that they match the star blocks I made, makes me like them even more.  Click HERE to find out how to make the star blocks.
