How do I make a Starfish Firework Table Display?

Start this festive project by cutting a few black and white paper straws to create the base for your fireworks.  To create different heights, you can cut the straws in half and add a few dabs of hot glue to adhere two straws together.

After the straws have dried, insert a wooden skewer into your straw for extra support.

Next, it is time to paint your fireworks onto the starfish!

Using various shades of light and dark blue and red glitter glue pens – create firework patterns on your starfish.  You can also use Elmer’s glue to make the patterns and then pour regular glitter on top.

For a little extra firework centerpiece fun, you can curl blue pipe cleaners and glue those to the tops of your starfish.

You can set aside your starfish to make room to create the centerpiece display now.

Using wire cutters, snip your boxwood square down to fit into a metal pail.

Put a piece of floral foam into the bottom of your pail, tuck your cut boxwood piece into the pail.  Then, gently push your starfish straws into the floral foam.  This is where having the wooden skewers help to keep them strong and standing tall.
