The first step to making fireworks in PowerPoint is khổng lồ create the explosion (ka-boom!).You can see what the over result of the explosion looks like with a black & white background below.


The circle is basically just a circle shape with a gradient effect.So we have a radial gradient that starts from center, and you can make it whatever colors you like.

Now although the gradient is far from an exact science, below I will show you the exact setting I used. You can play around with this yourself to lớn see what works best for your own project.

First color:Color (inner most color) – YellowSecond color:Color – OrangePosition – 19% positionThird color:Color – BlackPosition — 78% positionTransparency – 90%Fourth color:
The large flare is actually a 24 point star. You can get it by going khổng lồ Insert tab and then the Shapes gallery and simply choosing it from the dropdown menu. Once you insert the 24 point star on your slide, grab the yellow dot adjuster, you can see that it collapses into this flare lượt thích effect.If you pull the adjuster all the way down & change the outline to lớn orange, you’ll get the shape you see on the right (almost looks lượt thích a dandelion!).

For the orange outline, pick the màu sắc and width you like; mine is set lớn 0.5 pt. Don’t worry about the fill, as we can’t even see that for this shape – we’re just working with the outline.
If for whatever reason you don’t have the 24 point star in your version of PowerPoint, you can simply create this same effect with 12 intersecting lines. Doing it with the star method just makes it faster
So the last piece of the explosion animation is the small flare, which is a 32-point star. It’s the same process for inserting it – you can get it from the Shapes menu and simply adjust it.
This piece has the same settings as the large flare, except it’s a darker orange color. So just use the adjuster and the color settings to set it up.Once you have the three pieces finished, just align them on vị trí cao nhất of each other, making sure that the gradient circle is on top.
With the objects stacked on đứng top of each other, if you change your slide background lớn black, your graphic should look like the picture below – now it’s starting lớn look like a firework!
Making the tail for your firework is really easy; it’s just a rectangle with a gradient fill.Here we have a linear gradient with a 270 degree angle, and you can see the specific colors I used down below.
First color:Color – BlackTransparency – 100%Second color:Color – OrangePosition – 50% positionTransparency – 30%Third color:Color – YellowPosition — 100% positionTransparency – 0%Another interesting piece you can play around with is the outline of your tail, playing with the different dashed options và widths to create different effects.

I personally liked the combination of a 0.5 width outline and the third option down (called “dash dot”) for the line to get the effect below:

Okay, so now let’s get to the fun part where we bring your fireworks to life using PowerPoint animations.The firework part has 3 animations, and the tail has 2. But before we vày anything else, let’s group the firework pieces together, starting with the the flare.Select all the pieces, right-click them, select Group, then Group again (or hit Ctrl + G on your keyboard to group them together).
Note: Since we are adding multiple animations lớn the grouped object, make sure you use the “Add Animation” dialog box.
For the tail, we need to địa chỉ cửa hàng two animations:1. Add a Wipe entrance effect2. địa chỉ Random Bars for the exit effect
Now, select everything within the Animation Pane, and change all the timings lớn be 00.25 in duration.
Let’s also mix them all to lớn start “After Previous.”Now take the entrance for Rectangle 6, which is our tail, and move it all the way khổng lồ the top, và take the exit of the tail (also Rectangle 6) & move it right after the entrance of the firework, then change it to lớn “Start with Previous.”
This sequence basically says that the tail goes up first, the burst appears as the tail disappears, then the burst explodes and disappears. Below you have a short video clip of the effect of what the combination of these animations should look like.
