Upcycled Rocket Craft

DSCF0870 title

O and I had great fun making this hanging upcycled rocket.  I bought some coloured cellophane sheets on offer at a local craft store and needed to think of some crafts we could use them for!

You’ll need:

*Cereal box

*Scissors

*Glue

*Coloured cellophane

*Pens

*Strings

First cut the cereal box into a rocket shape with flames coming out the base.  Cut the inside of the flames out to leave a hole.

Cut strips of the cellophane.

Glue around the edge of the flames and stick the strips of cellophane down.  Cut the extra length of cellophane off the flames.

Colour in the rocket with the pens, poke a hole in the top of the rocket and attach a piece of string to hang it up.

      He was! The most important thing about a rocket are the flames apparently! 🙂 xx

    Great idea. Really simple but I’d never have though of doing a stained glass style craft.

    Love this idea! It’s the kind of craft my boys would enjoy doing. I’ll have to keep an eye out for some cellophane. #letkidsbekids

      There is cellophane on the Crafty Crocodile website, it’s fairly cheap, although you might buy a whole lot of other things when you’re there! 🙂 xx

    this is a lovely idea. We have made similar things like this using kits from Baker Ross to make stained glass effect things.
