  2. Sand all of your handle sections down if they are rough or have paint on them.
     
  3. Paint handle sections. After they are dry, add a bit of brown ink and smudge it around to make them look a bit antique.

  6. Cut a random length of wire and wrap it around a pencil to curl it. Leave both ends straight to attach to the firecracker and to the star.
     
  7. Use Superglue to attach the wire to broom handle sections. Just put a little dab over the hole you made with your push pin and stick in your wire.
