We love loo roll and cardboard tube crafts so after our Salt Art Firework we decided to try some cardboard tube firework art.
- Cardboard tubes
- Sticky tape
- Paint – we used Neon Acrylic Paint
- Iridescent White Glitter
- Paper plates
- Black paper
How to make cardboard tube Firework prints
We used kitchen paper rolls as they are longer and we could use both ends. We cut slits in to the ends before cutting the length of the tube and then rolling it tighter and taped them.
Put your paint on to paper plates and use the cardboard tube to print on to your paper.
We used one end for each of the colours, so as to not contaminate the paint and mix the colours together.
Before the paint had dried we covered it with translucent glitter
Why not take a look at my other firework activities including scratch art fireworks, salt art fireworks, edible sparklers and bonfire artwork.
What a fab idea, I love the results they look so effective. I will have to try this out with my girls 🙂
Oh what a fun idea! Will defo be trying this with the girls…thanks for sharing!
A very simple but effective idea. I love the glitter on top, you can’t go wrong with glitter.
Such a lovely idea. At least something new to do with all those paper tubes.
What a great idea! The simple ones are always the best x.
Oh that is so simple but so clever and looks so good.
What a great idea! This is so easy to put together and I’m sure kids love it!
Wow, I love this and it may stop my 2 year old getting so messy.
This looks so colourful and fun, a great way to get the kids excited about bonfire night!
This is actually pretty genius, they look so good!
