Seeing Stars

  Happy 4th of July....

The “firecrackers” in the middle of this display are candles, cut them down to random sizes and wrapped in papers of colors and stripes.

The rocket image is free-floating by using a scrap of acetate wedged in between the firecrackers.

I love the 3D look of stars that are scored and folded so I incorporated a couple small ones onto my firecrackers and some big ones on the skewers at the back.    The base of the display is a block of styrofoam.  I chose styrofoam so the star skewers would have something to stick into.

I added stars to the ends of the candle wicks for fun and scattered a few more on the base.


  1. Fabulous patriotic centerpiece. Happy 4th of July to you!

  2. Love, love love it. Fabulous!!!


What say you?

All masked up and no where to go.......

Up to my Styrofoam neck in face masks!    No need to wear the same one at work every day!    What a crazy time we're living in righ...
