Fork Painted Fireworks Craft Tips for Success

*For this project you should use red, white, and blue paint. If you desire sparkly fireworks you can just sprinkle glitter on top when the paint is still wet and it will stick.

*Dip the top end of the fork in paint and push it down on the paper (only use the tips). Do not drag or rock the fork while stamping the fork down or it will not look as much like a firework.
