DIY 4th of July Water Bottle Fireworks
Create these fun, safe DIY 4th of July fireworks out of repurposed water bottles. These make a great centerpiece for your 4th of July party or cookout! They are so easy to make and it could be a fun project for kids. Add LED lights to the center of each firework to illuminate the decoration. I like to use multicolored battery operated fairy lights that blink to make them more like flashing fireworks. They look great after dark because the lights make them come alive.
- Water Bottles (clean and dry)
- Multipurpose Acrylic Paint (red, white, blue and gold)
- Colorful Glitter Glue (I used confetti color)
- Lollipop Sticks or Wood Dowels
- Styrofoam Base
- Decorative Ribbon
- LED Lights
- Hot Glue Gun
- Cut the top off a water bottle about 2 inches from the cap.
- Make 1/4 inch wide equal cuts into the bottle, bend out the pieces out in differently to give them a firework effect.
- Paint each of the fireworks with different multi surface acrylic paint.
- Add the confetti glitter glue to the tips of each firework and let dry.
- Hot glue lollipop sticks to the back of each of the fireworks.
- Push them into the Styrofoam cube.
- Glue decorative ribbon around the base of the Styrofoam cube to make a festive display.
- Add LED lights and enjoy your fun 4th of July Fireworks decoration!
