I am not really huge on decorating my house for holidays.  Between 4 kids, keeping house and my love of sewing, decorating for the holidays is pretty low on my list.  I have decide to have a sofa table in my entry that I can decorate for the holidays and call it good.  Then I can have a few decorations for holidays to feel festive and not to much to store the rest of the year.
I have had this idea in my head for a while and finally saw what I need to make it happen at Michaels. Wahoo!!!
So here is version #1
Ribbon Style
Let’s start with a supply list:
Paper pencil cups
(These come in a package of 6 by Creatology at Michaels)
2 inch ribbon (1 yard will make at least 3 firecrackers)
1/2 inch ribbon (1 yard)
3/4 inch or 1 inch ribbon (1/2 yard)
Wilton cupcake picks ( I got mine at Michaels in the patriotic holiday section)
A crafty girl’s best friend = Glue Gun
Optional blue or red spray paint

Start by punching a hole in the center of your pencil cup.
I am a little old school.  I still have my Making Memories punch kit. Similar to this one.  I still use the eyelet setter and hammer to make my holes.  It works great.  If you don’t have a similar item I was thinking you could use a toothpick or bbq skewer to punch your hole.
Here is the step I missed.  If you would like to paint your cups, paint them now. Just give them a light coat around and a second coat on the top.
Find the center of the cup and place a small line of glue starting at the center and going 2 inches to the edge.

Start with a small line of glue in the center and move to the edges of the container.  Lay edge of ribbon on glue and wrap around container.  Place small line of glue on top or first edge and glue down. Repeat for second piece of ribbon.   

Repeat last step for blue ribbons around edges.
This is what it will look like.

Add your cupcake picks and stick them into the holes you punched in the beginning.

Wrap your last ribbon around your firecracker ans VOILA your done.  Super easy your kiddos could do it!!
I added my 4th of July free Printable and I have the beginning of my holiday decoration!
Version #2
Glitter style
Pencil cups
Red or Blue glitter
Spray Glue
Wilton cupcake picks
1-Punch Hole in cup
2- Spray glue on cup
3- Sprinkle glitter on cup.  All over.

4- Let dry
5- Add Pick
6- Wrap with ribbon

All finished.  I can’t decide which on I like more. I love fireworks.  Our first summer in Idaho Falls were eventful. But one memory I have is the Fireworks.  Melaluca, a local company put on an amazing fireworks show.  You can see them from miles around and they shoot them off from the a spot around the falls of the Snake River.  It is awesome. I can’t wait to see the show this year!

 I hope you all have a safe and fantastic holiday!!
