Reanimated: Sparkler Light Painting

Name: Sarah Miller

My Blog:

Original Inspiration:


What I Did: We had some friends over for a 4th of July party, and I thought it would be AWESOME to attempt to write out USA with sparklers like I had seen so beautifully done on Pinterest. To say it was a fail would be an understatement. U2O? Wtf.

Blog Post Detailing The Experience:

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  I would need to get all my friends on board with writing the letters backwards. Ha! I also would need to try again when it’s not so light. It sort of lost the appeal when you can see my blurry friends.

    Haha, this is awesome. Just one of those things one doesn’t think about when doing a nice DIY!

    Keep trying, you’ll get it someday 😉

    This is just done wrong, It needs to be darker and have a shorter time exposure
