On the 4th of July you always see fireworks that are stars. This video shows how to make your own fireworks stars.
You will need:
Black powder ( there is another video which shows you how to make black powder)
Plate to mix ingredients on
Put approximately 2 spoonfuls of black powder on the plate. Splash 4 good splashes of alcohol on the powder and mix. Form into a square and cut with your ruler into 1" squares. Let the mixture dry. When mixture is dried, take a square and put on a piece of tinfoil and light. Be very careful when doing this.
