Learn to create your very own Sparkling 3D firework art! The other day, I received my very first “happy mail” box from Craft Project Ideas, and immediately my son started planning all the things he wanted to create! I was so excited that I had to run to the store after putting the kiddos to bed last night to pick up some little canvases so we could keep on rolling in craft mode in the morning. (To be clear, my husband stayed home; I didn’t leave them alone, LOL!)
The box was full of red, white, and blue items, and with the 4th of July right around the corner, this is what I came up with! This DIY firework art is easy enough for children to create, and pretty enough for mom to hang on the wall, and that makes it a win-win project in my book! We hope it adds a little sparkle and pop to your home this Independence Day!
For this project, you will need:
Canvases or foam board
Red, white, and blue pipe cleaners (or whatever colors you desire!)
Red acrylic paint
Small paint brush
Glitter glue (optional)
For the glitter fireworks, take your paint brush, pick your paint color, then paint a firework on your canvas and sprinkle it with glitter. Repeat until you have all your fireworks painted and glittered. Paint on any lettering you wish, and use the glitter glue to give your patriotic message a little flair (you can always just use glue and glitter for this 🙂 )!
For the 3D fireworks, start by cutting the pipe cleaners into about 2-3 inch pieces – a little variation in size is best!
Arrange and glue the pipe cleaners to your canvas. Make sure some of them are sticking up to give the 3D effect!
Once you have completed all of your fireworks, dab little bits of glue throughout the pipe cleaners and sprinkle them with glitter. Use glitter glue (or glue and glitter) to add some extra sparkle lines and you are all finished!
I hope you found this 4th of July DIY craft fun and unique! I would LOVE your help in spreading the Independence Day cheer through social media with the buttons below, too!
