Toilet Paper Roll July 4 Rockets, Firecrackers Tutorial and the 4th of July Decorated Tree



Here's what you'll need:
- empty toilet paper rolls
- decorative paper(s) of your choice (art paper, wrapping
   paper...I used a gift bag)
- bamboo skewers
- Christmas tinsel
- glue  ( used Elmer glue sticks and hot glue)
- scissors


To make the firecrackers in the last photo,
I added an extra piece of lightweight cardboard to 
one end of the TP tube; 
 a wired piece of blue yarn serves as a "fuse"
(could also use a pipe cleaner).


For table decorations,
give them a little extra something by wrapping
candy treats in tissue paper or a twist tie bag,
 then insert in open end of rocket or firecracker
...and...

here's what they look like as a tree decoration 










Have a safe and happy Holiday!!
