Just Like Sparklers

How are you on this delightful Thursday?

Today I'm using these simple materials to turn blah into... 


I fashioned the tulle and stripey straw to look like sparklers or magic wands -- a nod to birthday wishes! 

I cut the tulle into small rectangles, gathered a few on top of each other and sewed the middle to form a little pompom. Then I used hot glue to attach it to the end of the straw. I fluffed the tulle and glued some of the ends to the straw to keep its ball-like shape.

I opted not to add the red ribbon because these look festive enough for any celebration, even the Fourth of July. TADA!

Enjoy the picnics and fireworks everyone!
