Are these cute or what? I got the idea from my friend Margaret who got it from our friend Karen. I couldn't pass up making these to give to my neighbors kids and my girls at our annual 4th of July block party. We have the best 4th of July block party in the world. We have a bounce house, dunk tank, cotton candy machine, lots of carnival games, sno cone machine, a one man band, and last year we even had a clown that made balloon animals for all the kids. We eat all day and the kids have a blast with the games and dunking their friends in the dunk tank. When it starts to get dark the kids all line up and do a parade for the adults. Then we pass out those glow in the dark necklaces to all the kids and we blow off fireworks for about 45 minutes. It totally rocks. I am going to make a goodie bag for my three girls and the my friends three girls. I bought some red tin buckets from the $1 spot at Target. I also got some red white and blue pencils and bubbles from Party America. I am also going to put some wrapped chocolate in the bucket too. I can't wait until the party.
I took the wrapper off of the lifesavers and wrapped my own with the red, white, and blue paper. I used my paper piercer to poke a hole in the top of the lifesaver pack to put the garland in. I just cut three pieces and put them in the hole to look like firecrackers. Super cute ha? You could do these for different occasions with different garland too. I will post the completed project when it is completed.
