Zip Tie Fireworks Decor - three fireworks bursting decorating hanging in a clusterThese are cheap and cheerful decorative pieces just in time for 4th of July. I used a colourful assortment pack of zip ties I got at the Dollar store, along with some pipe cleaners, to make these fun dimensional bursts of colour. This is an excellent all-ages craft!


Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pipe cleaner (at least 12")
  • scissors
  • coloured zip ties

  5. Secure ends closed by twisting and tucking. Continue with the others.

  7. Tie some zip ties on around the circle, making sure the smooth surface side faces outwards.
  8. Zip Tie Fireworks Decor - begin attaching zip ties with smooth side facing outwards

  9. Continue with more colours, alternating them if desired.

  11. Make it all the way around the pipe cleaner with little space between the zip ties.

  13. Slightly bend the zip ties in the middle sections to create a bursting effect. Hang up with string, or place around a table of refreshments for your Independence Day party!
