Fourth of July Candy Container

This was a 10 minute craft... super easy !!
A fun craft to do with kids too!!

Firecracker candy (or snack) containers.

I'm filling them with popcorn and giving
them to my kids to keep them occupied as we
wait for the fireworks to begin.

If you are interested in making some you
will need....

Crystal Light containers
Glue sticks and hot glue
Scissors and an craft knife
Ribbons and trims

Cut the bag open length wise and wrap around the container.
Just make sure not to cover the lip at the top of the container.
If the lip gets covered the lid will no longer open easily.

Once the lid is covered poke a hole in the center to feed
a "wick" threw.

I would suggest adding a drop of glue to the ends of your
wick pieces. This will help them to hold their shape and keep
from unraveling. Also, tying a knot in one end will help
to stay secure.

Now one could get pretty crazy adding bits of trim or patriotic
novelties to these. I chose to keep mine pretty simple.

Just adding a few little trim pieces.

The best part about using the Crystal Light
containers for this craft is the "pop" noise they
make when they are opened.

This would be a fun craft to do with kids the morning
of the Fourth. Although, expect this ten minute craft to become
a slightly longer project.  ;)

Happy 4th of July!
