DIY 4th of July Project: Sparklers!

So for our final 4th of July party idea, we yet again visit Twig & Thistle, they have such great DIY projects. What 4th of July celebration is complete without some sparklers. This is such a great way to present the sparklers, and this also makes a great way to give them as favors at a weddings. So time to get a little creative!



What You’ll Need:

8.5 x 11″ 80lb white card stock (like this from Paper-Source)
8.5 x 11″ 80lb white text paper (like this from Paper-Source)
Color Printer
Paper Cutter
Double Sided Tape
Standard Hole Punch
Matchbooks (found at local grocery store)


1. Download the Matchbook Template and print onto white text paper. Download the Sparkler Card Template and print onto white card stock. Print using the highest quality settings on your color printer to ensure that the patterns and text are clear.

2. Trim out all the shapes using scissors or a sharp blade and making sure to trim off all the black edges. Use a standard hole punch and punch where indicated to allow the straws to be thread through. Carefully trim out the small rectangles in the Sparkler Holders to weave the sparklers through.

3. Secure the wrap around the matchbooks with double sided tape, making sure not to cover up the striker strip. Crease the edges with your fingers or using a bone folder so that they are crisp. Thread the sparklers through the slots.

Thank you Twig & Thistle for such great creative ideas!

Hope you enjoy your 4th of July celebrations, and remember to take a moment and thank a service member this weekend. Happy 4th!
