Hi. I'm Joy Howard from Family Fun here to show you how to make a wrapped twig necklace. To make one, you'll need a small twig, white acrylic paint, Tacky Glue, a toothpick, cotton embroidery floss, and a size 5 Pearl Cotton Thread. First, pain the twig and let it dry. Cut a length of cotton embroidery floss. Knot it on to the end of the twig and wind it around the length of the twig. Tie off the end and trim away the excess. Secure each knot with a dap of glue applied with the toothpick. Now, know a length of Pearl Cotton Thread to each end of the twig. Dab the knots with glue to hold them in place. Sweet and simple, our nature-inspired necklace makes a great homemade Mother's Day [unk] trinket.
Hi. I'm Debbie Way from FamilyFun Magazine, and I'm gonna show you how to make a confetti popper that's perfect for celebrating the Fourth of July. To make one, you'll need a plastic bottle, colored tape, a balloon, and paper. First, cut the top from the bottle and discard the rest. Cover the edge with colored tape. Stretch the balloon over the mouth of the bottle then work it down to shorten the balloon. Cut your paper into tiny pieces, then fill the popper. For a festive shower of confetti, hold on to the balloon at the bottleneck, pull down, and let it snap.

Hi. I'm Debbie Way from FamilyFun Magazine, and I'm gonna show you how to make patriotic pops, a healthy and refreshing treat for your Fourth of July barbeque. To make them, you'll need 1-inch thick slices of watermelon and apple, blueberries, a large and a small star-shaped cookie cutter, bamboo skewers, and straws. Use the larger cookie cutter to cut a star from the watermelon. Then cut out the center with the smaller cutter. Use the same cookie cutter to make a small star from an apple slice. Carve a small hole from the center and pop in a blueberry. Place the apple star inside the watermelon. Then insert a skewer through the pieces and slip a straw over the skewer. Now watch your family reach for the stars.
