I received an e-mail from one of my readers a few weeks ago wondering if it would be possible to come up with some sort of 4th of July firecracker Mod Podge craft. I thought it was a great idea and knew that they would look great on my tablescape. I had seen a few ideas floating around Pintrest and wanted to come up with my own spin. Since I used coordinating paper, these little guys match my 4th of July word block perfectly. They were quick and easy to make - especially since I made them right along side word blocks.

As a side note - when I was trying to find a wooden dowel large enough for this project, Lowes was the only store that carried 1" or larger so you may want to look there first. I used 1 1/8" size for my firecrackers.

I love the 4th of July. I love the fireworks, the barbecues and all things red, white and blue. Growing up, the 4th was all about the fireworks. I hated waiting for dark to come because as a child, it never seemed to come fast enough. I loved snuggling on my blanket and watching the fireworks go off. Now as an adult, I have a much deeper appreciation for the 4th. It is more than just the fun holiday I remember as a kid. I know that I am blessed to live in and be an American. I am grateful for the liberty that I am afforded because I live in this great nation.
I knew that I needed to add to my growing collection of word block with a 4th of July set. I love the way they turned out. They were a perfect addition to my 4th tablescape.
