Pair of scissors
(3 different colours)
straw or skewer
Cut each of the 3 colours of large tissue paper sheets in half. Stack each of the half sheets together.
Fold the stacked sheets in half, lengthwise.
Using scissors, make small vertical cuts into the bottom edge of the stacked and folded papers, stopping a few inches from the folded edge.
Apply a thin line of glue to the folded edge.
Place your straw or skewer onto the start of the glue and begin rolling it up, twisting the tissue around until the end.
Dab a small amount of glue to the seam and press to seal it shut.
Leave to dry, then fluff out the tissue paper to form your sparkler!
