Create a Firework Crown for Bonfire Night
Get the little ones excited for Bonfire Night and make your very own colourful DIY Firework Crown! An ideal arts and crafts project for children aged 5-7 years old. Simply follow these instructions to make firework crowns this Guy Fawkes night and get creative.
Art materials you will need:
- Coloured Card (in red, orange & yellow)
- Holographic Card
- Scissors and Glue
- Felt Stars or Stick-On Stars
- Sticky Tape
- Pencil & Stapler
- Tape Measure
How to make a firework crown this bonfire night:
- Measure the circumference of the child’s head. Add 4cm and note down the figure.
- Cut out a thick band of card. (It should be as long as the figure noted down in Step 1). This will become the headband for your firework crown hat.
- Place the band of card around the child’s head. Adjust for a comfortable fit.
- Carefully remove the headband, then staple it at the appropriate point to make the crown.
- Take a selection of coloured and holographic card. Cut out decorations for your headband (such as explosive bursts), then glue to the headband.
- Take the remaining coloured card and cut it into long, thin strips.
- Next, tape the strips inside the hat so they cascade over the top edge (as pictured). Use a pencil to curl up some of the overhanging strips.
- To complete, glue foam stars onto the remaining uncurled strips. Your firework crown is now ready to wear!
