You can make a simple fuse for fireworks with just two simple household items. You need a square of toilet paper and a few matches. Cut the toilet paper into strips then roll them into string shapes. To make sure it will burn hot enough and long enough is where the matches come in. Scrape the chemicals off the top of the matches and mix with water to form a paste and then spread it on your toiletpaper strips. Make sure they are dry before using them.
