4th of July Dynamite Garland DIY

Sticks of dynamite can light up any 4th of July party – or make a bright backdrop for a photobooth. My boys rarely comment on the crafts I make, but this one got a lot of love. I think they thought it had something to do with Angry Birds. Boom! (PS – More 4th of July Ideas!)
