The Fourth of July is just a few days away now! Have you decided what you’re doing to celebrate? For me, a fun party with matching decorations is always a must. I love that people get so excited about decorating for holidays! And here in Utah, the Fourth of July is a biggie. If you’re in need of last-minute party decorations, here’s the newly-revised Fourth of July version of our paper cake topper fireworks! (Here’s our previous version, if you’re interested). So if you’re like me and love your party decorations, you’re all set to celebrate the Fourth.
Fireworks and the Fourth
Can we all agree that the best part about the Fourth of July is fireworks? I am always mesmerized by amazing firework shows–the colors, the lights, the sparkle! I could do without the loud noise (not to mention stress of toddlers and babies around fire!) but there are pros and cons to everything. Well, if you’re like me and are not so crazy about mixing real fireworks with your kids and their all-too-eager hands, these paper cake topper fireworks are for you. It gives you a beautiful, festive display without the noise or the worry!
Perfect for your Fourth of July celebrations, these red, white and blue fireworks are a stunning scene when arranged atop a cake. All you’ll need to make the magic happen is colored paper and some skewers. Cut them on your cricut maker or by hand, these little beauties will be the stars (or should I say fireworks?) of the party this Fourth of July.
How to Make Paper Cake Topper Fireworks
I love how easy these paper cake topper fireworks are to make. They’re the perfect solution for a last-minute craft that definitely doesn’t look it. Here’s how to make them:
- First, cut out the firework templates using scissors or a Cricut Maker. We use our trusty Cricut Maker for everything!
- Next, layer the larger fireworks to give them some dimension and glue together. To recreate our cake toppers, see the photos for reference!
- Now glue a skewer onto the back of each firework. Vary the heights of your skewers.
- Last, arrange atop your cake and enjoy the view!
