I was going through my holiday boxes recently and found these Easy DIY Firecracker Craft and decorations that my mom made years ago. I still have them after all these years – a little piece of my mom that my daughter can have.
The DIY firecracker crafts and decorations were so easy to make – an ideal 4th of July craft for adults and kids alike. Best of all they were made using empty toilet paper rolls, something we all have access to.
Let’s get crafting!

Easy DIY Firecracker Craft and Decorations
Empty bath tissue rolls (aka toilet paper rolls)
Red and blue paper (we used wrapping paper since it was shinier, but construction paper would work with kids)
White curling ribbon
Pipe cleaners (we used gold and silver)
Optional (these items can be found at craft stores or online):
Floral Sticks (we used red sparkle floral sticks to add some height to the firecrackers)
Blue and/or Red Star Foil Garland (we cut into strips)
Firecracker Toiler Paper Roll Craft Instructions:
Cut red and blue paper into 6-inch by 10-inch pieces, one for each firecracker.
Wrap each empty bath tissue roll with red or blue paper.
TIP: Wrap it like a tootsie roll, long-ways, with the extra paper on both ends. Use one long piece of tape to secure.
Push one end of the extra paper into the empty bath tissue roll (this will be the bottom of the firecracker).
Top of the Firecracker – place all your goodies (the pipe cleaners, floral sticks, garland pieces, etc) INTO the top of the bath tissue roll. Then tie all together with white ribbon around the goodies and paper.
VOILA! Easy DIY Firecracker Decorations!
