Nowadays, in the age of increased health and safety awareness, I suspect most firework demonstrations are of the professional, 'properly organised' variety. (Images of my dad going back to check on an improperly lit firework, embedded in a pile of sand springs to my mind). But with organised firework displays increasingly being the norm, the fireworks seem to be bigger and louder, and seem to go on well before AND after Bonfire Night (see - 'Grumpy old woman' status has definitely kicked in).
So, embracing the spectacle and tradition which is Bonfire Night, here's my selection of fireworks and Guy Fawkes-themed goodies from Etsy.
|Guy Fawkes Paper Sculpture Kit by MakeNLearn|
I love this paper sculpture kit from MakeNLearn, depicting the man without whom none of us would be enjoying the 5th November. Remarkably effective, quite eerie and educational too. I think it's a great product.
|Firework pendant by somethingtodobeads|
I love the colours and vibrant feel of this polymer clay pendant by somethingtodobeads which really conveys the excitement of Bonfire Night.
|Black firework arm warmers by SecrettSerendipity|
Finally, I love these Black Firework Arm Warmers by SecrettSerendipity.
Beautiful fabric, and a truly novel way to get into the whole Bonfire Night vibe!
However you decide to enjoy Bonfire Night, stay safe and have fun!!
Until next time, have a great week!
