This is a really easy decoration to make and I bought all of the supplies from Dollar Tree.

The top of the firecracker is a plastic cup that was cut and made into a cone shape. I used long Dollar Tree skewers to stick the firecracker (pool noodle segments) onto but any long dowel would work.

Check out the photos and supply list below to learn how to make them.

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Pool noodles
  • Bamboo skewers or wood dowels (32-inches long)
  • 16 oz. disposable plastic cups
  • Tinsel garland
  • Metallic party streamers
  • Scissors
  • Clear packing/shipping tape
  • Hot glue gun

How to Make Pool Noodle Firecrackers

Start by cutting a pool noodle into pieces to vary red and blue segments. My pool noodles were thin so I was able to cut them with scissors.

Push a skewer through each of the pool noodle pieces to form the firecracker.

Push the pool noodle segments onto the skewer to form the firecracker.

Make the top of the firecracker by cutting a slit along one side of a cup and then cut the circle bottom out of the cup as shown. Use clear packing tape to secure the cone shape. Cut the rim of the cone off to even out the shape.
