Straw Fireworks

You can’t go wrong with straw fireworks. The messier the better! Don’t fret about getting this perfect because it’ll look great no matter what. 

Step 1: Cut the straw from the top until the bend. Continue cutting until the straw is sliced into small pieces. 

Step 2: Repeat step 1 on three or four straws.

Step 3: Hold the straws tightly together or secure them with a rubber band. Spread the cut tops out into a circle.

Step 4: Pour and spread paint onto the plate. Make small, alternating dollops of every color.
