To make a Bonfire Night Collage

  1. Start off by mixing your glitter with PVA glue and paint some starburst shapes onto the black card. Don’t forget to add your sequins before the paint dries!
  2. Cut thin, short strips of  brown card and glue them across the middle of the card to make a fence.
  3. Cut pointed flames shapes from red, orange and yellow tissue paper. Glue these down in the centre of the scene. Add some cut-down lolly sticks to the tissue paper to make wood for the fire.
  4. Cut clothes shapes and hairstyles from scraps of felt and glue them onto the collage. Finish off the scene with some leaf shaped card at the bottom of the picture.
