Have something fun planned for this Fourth of July? These safe, quick and easy-to-make sparklers are sure to brighten up any event!
Rip off a piece of duct tape about 11 inches long.
Take the skewer and roll the tape around it length-wise. Cover everything but the pointy end.
Cut five or six pieces of duct tape approximately 6 inches in length or less. Fold each one in half lengthwise.
Trim any excess so your strips are nice and neat.
Cut a nice angle at the top of each strip.
Make 1/8" (or so) cuts in each strip of tape, leaving about a 1/2 inch of tape at the bottom to keep it together. As if you were making a duct tape tassel.
Line up your duct tape in your pattern of choice (we did longest to shortest) and cut a piece of duct tape a little longer than the width of the strips combined.
Place your pieces of cut duct tape onto the sticky side of the single long piece.
Secure the cut pieces onto the long piece.
Take your skewer and start rolling down the length of the long single piece. Just keep rolling and wrapping it around the skewer. Super simple!
Put a little pressure on the bottom of the duct tape as you roll for a nice and neat finish.
Put a small piece of tape around the bottom - where the tape pieces meet the skewer.
Add an extra strip on duct tape to neaten up the end if you would like. All done! Make a bunch to hand at at your next party or use as a centerpiece.
