Light up the Fourth of July

While there might not be a parade to watch this year, the Fourth of July celebrations will still have plenty of fireworks to watch. Our designer team have created a fabulous firework-themed red, white and blue garland with 3D rockets for you to make to brighten up your home, and patriotic cup cake toppers too.

Make your Firework Garland

This sensational garland will look amazing wherever you hang it. It’s great fun to make too! Click here to print out all the parts.

You will need:
  • Card (or print onto paper and then glue onto card)
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Glue

Step 1.

Cut out and fold in half the diamond shapes to make triangular garland pennants. Make sure you leave a good length of string before and after all the pennants, room enough for the rockets and to hang the garland up.

Step 2.

Cut out the rocket tails including the thin sections. Then glue along the side at the top and roll up.

Step 3.

Glue one edge of the rocket, roll up and stick together.

Step 4.

Glue the rocket tail inside the rocket.

Step 5.

Make a cone shape with the rocket top and stick together.

 Step 6.

Glue the top 2 tabs of the rocket inside the cone.

Step 7.

Pinch the top of the tabs to stick securely.

Step 8.

Fold the rocket back loop in half.

Step 9.

Glue one side of the rocket back loop to the back of the rocket.

Step 10.

Once secure, hook the back tab over the garland.

Step 11.

Glue the other half of the back loop together, sandwiching the string, holding it in place.

Create Charming Cup Cake Toppers

These cup cake toppers look fabulous, and are easy to make. Click here to print them out.

You will need:
  • Card (or print onto paper and then glue onto card)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cocktail sticks

Simply cut out the toppers, apply glue and fold in half over a cocktail stick. The hearts don’t fold, just stick the 2 together with glue, with the cocktail stick in the middle.
