Hello! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been around. Are you feeling that way, or is it just me? Last week was our family vacation. We ended up just doing a family staycation, but we had a lot of fun. We went to a couple of local amusement parks, water park, drive inn movie, museum, and did a few other fun things as a family. It was nice that I didn’t really have to pack for it. We did pack lunch for a day or two of it, but never had to pack any luggage. 🙂 Anyway, I’m back, and today I’m sharing these fun Independence Day Front Porch Fireworks with you.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared this picture on Instagram, and I asked if anyone had any guesses for what I was working on. Well, I finally got it finished. I was working on these fun arrows turned fireworks! This was one of those projects that looked completely different in my head, and turned out different than I thought, but I do love them. So it works, right? I just simply cut the bottom of the arrows so they were straight, then I was ready to get started. Once I had them painted blue and red, I taped off the top and planned to use Krylon Glitter Blast Glitter Spray. You Guys!! Maybe I’m just really late to the party, but man O man, this stuff is amazing! I could get addicted to this stuff! I sprayed the triangle part (taped off) of the arrow with the glitter, but the way the glitter was over spraying on the tape looked really cool, SO, instead of painting stripes and polka dots, like I had envisioned, on the bottom of the firework/arrows, I took the tape off and painted some more, letting the glitter fall down the firework.
The Krylon glitter just worked like a charm! Once I had the glitter on, I used my Mod Podge sealer to seal the glitter on. I put a nice thick coat of that on. I didn’t want the glitter going anywhere.
When the paint and sealer were dry, I used a small drill bit and I drilled holes across the bottom. Then I cut enough lengths of wire to fill all the holes. I used my hot glue gun to glue them in, and then I curled them, and stretched them out all differently.
I do love they way these fun Front Porch Fireworks turned out. Now if I could just get my new Independence Day wreath finished and hung on the door to go with these. 🙂
