Firework Printing Painting

You have to admit there is something really unique about Bonfire Night. To me it has a special atmosphere to it, and once it is over I truly feel that I can start listening to Christmas music and planning fun things to do with a wintry feel. To celebrate this unofficial change of season my youngest charge and myself made our very own firework printing pictures to give autumn a special send off.

Make sure you follow my painting board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own firework printing painting you will need:

  • String or wool
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Glitter

Cut your cardboard in to various rectangles and squares, then cut slits around the sides.

Wrap the string around the cardboard, using the slits to hold the string in place. I tried both doubling our wool up and wrapping it round once and found that it didn’t really make much difference to the definition of the pattern.

Put your paints onto plates so that it easier to access them, then stir in some glitter to give your fireworks extra sparkle.



Gently place your cardboard printers into the paint and scrape any excess paint off on the side of the plate.

Then print away onto your paper to create your very own fireworks display.

We used both black and white paper for this, and although it worked on both of them, the black one made the colours and the glitter really stand out.
