Hey everyone. My boyfriend and I decided that on the 4th we would attach sparklers to his poi chains and have fun with it. They were hard to spin because they were so light...we kept the tricks really basic. The pics came out really cool tho. Enjoy!

That's pretty sweet.

I tried something similar last year which got rid of the problem of the poi being too light. Instead of just attaching the sparklers directly to the chains I left my heads on and attached like 5 sparklers to the eyelet of my pre-soaked monkey fists. Instead of just having light from the sparklers I had fire balls that were sparking. It was a neat effect.

Anyway beerchug to the good idea.

Peace, Love, Circles

I tried that too, but how did you light them? I lit the poi heads, but the sparklers didn't all want to light and one of the sparklers must have melted through, because it went flying. I have a pic of it flying off, looks kinda cool, but I don't think it's very safe for spectators.

What is actually the best way of attaching sparklers to your poi heads and how do you light them so that everything burns?
