4th Of July Project: DIY Candy Firecrackers
I love throwing a Fourth of July bash every year and thought it would be fun to have some candy firecrackers on the tables, as decoration and fun for our guests. They're inexpensive to make and can be thrown together at the last minute.
You don't need much to make these candy firecrackers and you can customize all of the supplies to fit your needs. Don't like Life Savers®? Use peppermints instead! Can't find the decorative wire garland? Just skip out on it or substitute with a thick piece of string. There are tons of ways to customize this project for what you need.
- Candy or Peppermint Roll
- Decorative Wire Garland

These are so easy to make that my boys will probably be the ones doing it, since I'm usually so busy with last minute party preparations!
Step 1. Download & Print Your Labels
I've created three different and coordinating designs for your use. Feel free to customize the label template or only print your favorites!
Step 2. Apply The Labels
Remove the labels from the liner sheet and wrap them around the candy rolls.
Step 3. Add Garland
Take the decorative wire garland and cut 3"–4" sections. Group three of them together and push through one end of the candy roll until secure.
The hole running through all the candies makes this possible!
Step 4. Repeat Until Finished
Continue these steps until you've made as many candy firecrackers as you need.
These America-themed firecracker candy favors are really easy to make and can be an inexpensive favor for your Fourth of July party. I hope you all enjoy making this fun project either by yourself or with kids. Such a cute addition to any patriotic table, right? Have a great Fourth of July!
