Drill a hole in the top of each fire cracker.
Next, cut some wire, each at a different length.
Now, twist little loops on each strand. Once that is done, twist all three wires together at the base. Repeat for each fire cracker.
Next, glue a stars onto the end of each wire. There should be a large, medium and small star on each fire cracker.
Dab some glue into the hole.

These are so cute!!! I love the wire. Last night I was working on some wooden candlesticks to make them look like fire crackers. I was just going to poke some jute yarn stuff to make it look like the wick part =)

I agree that the stars on the wire are the perfect finishing touch for the firecrackers. I love how you painted each one- especially the striped one. They look great.
