As promised I am starting to share some of the crafty things I made for 'A Night in Bethlehem' event.
We are going to have a floor seating area with mats, rugs and cushions and I wanted to have a fire in the middle of it but obviously for health and safety reasons I couldn't have a real fire.
I started with an almost round circle of cardboard which I then painted black.
Next I made some rocks by crumpling brown paper and coating them in a pva/water mix. Once these were dry, I then painted them grey and stuck around the edge of the fire base.
Next I needed some logs. I cut some strips of cardboard and rolled them up. I used 3 layers of strips for each log.
I then painted the logs brown.
To complete the fire I used some red, orange and yellow tissue paper to make flames and added the logs.
