Gather some leaves and twigs from the garden or a local park, and celebrate Bonfire Night by making this colourful bonfire collage.

What you will need:

  • Colourful leaves: red, yellow and orange
  • Twigs
  • Empty cereal box
  • A piece of A4 card
  • PVA glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush (very handy to have these nearby)

  • What to do:

    Step 1: Cut out the front of a cereal box and stick a piece of card on to it with PVA glue.

    Step 2: Arrange two sticks in the shape of a cross on the card, and glue them down. Repeat this process several times until you have a small pile of twigs.

    Step 3: Place the yellow leaves on to your piece of card just above the twigs – to form the bottom section of the fire. When you are happy with the shape, stick the leaves down with glue.

    Step 4: Now do exactly the same for the next two sections of the fire. Use orange leaves for the middle section and red leaves for the top.

    Step 5: Wait one hour for the glue to dry and then marvel at your bonfire collage. That’s what we call awesome autumn art!
