Step 1: You will need some bleach, a pencil with eraser, a pencil sharpener, toothpicks, and some fabric or linens. We happened to have some great navy napkins from our last shoot handy but any fabric or dark colored linen will do.

Step 2: Add the bleach to a small jar.

Step 3: Use the pencil sharpener to make the tip of the pencil eraser smaller.

Step 4: Dip the eraser into the bleach.

Step 5: Press firmly onto the fabric letting the bleach soak in. This dot will be the anchor of the firework.

Step 6: Dip the toothpick into the bleach.

Step 7: Make curved lines coming from the anchor.

Step 8: Use the tip of the eraser to embellish the firework at the end for a finishing touch.

Step 9: Finish setting your table with some pretty red, white, and blue touches!
