How to make this fun patriotic art project
Start by punching out a circle for each firecracker you want to create. Secure them to your piece of cardstock using a bit of painters tape.
Next, take your marker and color a few circles around the inside of your circle. Then add the matching glitter glue.
Using a cotton swab, pull the glitter off of the circle out onto the paper in streaks.
Creating a beautiful firework shape. The glue will pull a bit of the color from the marker as well making them show even better. You can even pull a trail down the paper to show where it shot off from.
Use a separate cotton swab for each color. Once all of your fireworks are done carefully remove the circle center and you’re done!
