When you attend a Fourth of July parade, picnic, or firework show, you must dress the part. These red, white and blue fireworks bracelets are just the thing to show your patriotic spirit. Your kids will love making them too.

Fireworks Bracelets Supplies:

  • 1/4″ clear PVC vinyl tubing
  • 3/8″ clear PVC vinyl tubing
  • Painter’s tape
  • Different color glitter
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Optional: Ribbon to cover the connecting tube

 

Step 1: Measure your wrist. Cut the ¼” tubing to the length of your wrist measurement. Cut a ½ inch piece of the 3/8” tubing. This is your connector piece.

Step 2:  Cover one of the ends of the ¼” tubing with painter’s tape. Insert the funnel in the opposite end.

    Great idea! I see the vinyl tubing at Home Depot and Lowe’s but I can’t find the connectors. Suggestions?
