How to…

  • Using your selected material measure the length needed using your cardboard roll, cut to size and secure to the insert with glue
  • For the top of your rocket you will need to make a cone shape, use the wallpaper for best results. Cut out a circular shape in the size required (this can be trimmed if needed after) and make one cut using the scissors that goes to the centre.
  • Fold the wallpaper from the cut you made wrapping each side over each other until you have the cone shape you want. Secure together using sellotape or glue.
  • If using card you can cover the cone in glue and add glitter to give an extra bonfire night sparkle
  • Secure the cone to your cardboard roll using sellotape or glue
  • Use the ribbon and pipe cleaners to make the rocket tail. You can twist the pipe cleaners around a pen to make swirls or shape into zig zags. Secure these with sellotape.
  • Add you decorations such as stars or glitter to your rocket.
