Continuing on with the 4th of July theme today, we created these adorable “POP” 4TH OF JULY FIRECRACKER PARTY FAVORS by using push up pop containers {available in my Shop}, ‘Pop-Its’, my free printable alphabet mini bunting banner, card stock, crepe paper, pipe cleaners, bakers twine & silver star garland pieces.

I love how they turned out! Imagine how excited your children would be if you made these for them for a BBQ, Independence Day parade, or a firework show.

Follow the simple tutorial below…


STEP ONE: Fill your push pop container with ‘Pop-Its’ {Push Pop Containers available in my shop here}

STEP TWO: Make your miniature pennant “POP” banner by using my free printable template below {click to enlarge & save to your computer} and some bakers twine {find bakers twine at a great price in my shop here} & attach the banner to the container with a little bit of hot glue.

STEP THREE: Cut a 4 inch round circle out of card stock and create a slit going to the middle of the circle.
STEP FOUR: Make the circle into a cone shape and glue. Attach the pointed sphere to the lid of the push pop container with hot glue.

STEP FIVE: Take three 6 inch strips of paper streamers {inexpensive crepe paper streamers available in my shop here} and cut small slits along the sides like so…

STEP SIX: Fold the strips of crepe paper in half like so…

STEP SEVEN: Adhere the crepe paper fringe to the bottom and top of the party favors with hot glue.

STEP EIGHT: Attach a 2 inch piece of silver pipe cleaner to the top of the firecracker favor to create a fuse.

STEP NINE: Cut strips of silver star garland and glue them to the bottom of the push pop container.

And Viola! I hope you enjoy! Stay tuned for more fun 4th of July party favor ideas here on Kara’s Party Ideas this week!
