Wooden Firecrackers!!!!!

Wooden Firecrackers!!!!!

I just love decorating my front porch for the Fourth of July!!!IMG_3951

You can see the whole Patriotic porch HERE!

But, I always try to add one more thing each year!

This year its Wooden Firecrackers!!!


These are so stinkin easy, it’s obscene!!!

I asked Hubby to cut some 4×4 posts we had leftover from our Arbor/Patio Construction.

I didn’t obsess about the exact measurements…..I just said…….

“I want em staggered”!!


He did fabulous!  I painted one red (crimson), white and navy blue! Sorry, no pics of actual painting. I was frantically looking for my camera!!

I drilled holes in the tops of the 4×4’s for copper wiring that I curved around a pencil and spray painted silver!


Wrapped the three together with some white rope we had lying around the house and spray painted a wooden star silver that I found in my craft box!!!




I love a project that is so simple, yet adds much punch!  The possibilities are endless with these….think of all the different adornments you could do!  I chose to keep it simple.


Right now, I have them by my front door but we have more 4×4’s so I think we’ll make one more to stagger on the stairs with my lanterns!


Maybe even make a taller set to place by the front door!

There ya go!!!  EASY PEASY!!  That’s my motto!

I’ve added a couple more “little” touches that I’ll share when the whole porch is done this weekend!

Next post, I’ll show you how I decorated the inside for the fourth but didn’t use any Red, White or Blue!

Here’s a peek!……


I think it’s the rebel in me!!


Until next time……….
