Wooden Fire Crackers; July Silhouette Challenge

Now that I am feeling a bit more like myself, I decided it was time for me to join this month's Silhouette Challenge.  This month's theme is Patriotic, and when I saw the Silhouette cut file in the store the other day, I knew it needed to be in my life.  So I tossed around a few ideas and decided to do a small (or large) redo of an older project. 

Remember last year when I made the little wooden fire crackers for Fourth of July decor?  They are super cute right?  Well this year, I decided it was time to go big or go home. I took the idea of the little wooden firecrackers and went BIG!


  • 4x4 wood posts, I cut mine into three random sizes
  • Spray paint
  • Vinyl 
  • Silhouette
  • Thin floral wire
  • Hot glue 

After cutting my wood, I spray painted them.  When the paint was dry, I cut out the image on my Silhouette and then strategically placed them on the wood.

I took the floral wire and wrapped it around a pen so that I could curl it.  I hot glued the wire to the tops and TADA! they were done.  I tossed them on my door step with a fun USA wooden sign and fell in crafty love!

How are you decorating for the Fourth?
