Instructions

1. Take five straws per magnet, and snip off about 1/4 of each straw, leaving 3/4.

Tip: Save the short pieces to make a cute garland!

2. Carefully glue the straws together by using one as the “middle” and gluing the others together around it. When you’re finished, it should be flat on one side. This will be the back.

3. Take the piece of string and tie it around the middle a few times ending with a knot in the front with a little bit of the string hanging.

4. To make the wick, cut a small piece, about 1”, from the garland. It’s wire, so be careful. Take any dangling strings and stars off it. Glue it to the inside of the middle straw. Use a star from the garland to glue to the top of the wick.

5. Glue the magnet to the back of the finished firecracker where the string is. This will also secure the string.
