  1. Using a spray water bottle, lightly dampen the coffee filter.
  2. Using red, yellow and orange watercolors paint the entire coffee filter.
  3. Once dry, randomly drizzle lines of glue all over the coffee filter.
  4. Sprinkle glitter all over the glue.
  5. Once dry, cut the coffee filter into flame shapes.
  6. Build the fire picture. First, gle a couple of the flames onto the black paper. Then glue a few twigs on top at the base of the flames. Continue layering twigs and flames until all the flames are in place.


  1. When gluing the flames to the paper, scrunch up the base of the flame to give your picture a more dynamic / 3 dimensional effect.
