Statue of Liberty Torch

Celebrate the 4th of July while waving the Statue of Liberty's torch. Made with simple recycled materials, the flame really glitters!



Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

Cut the top off the paper cup so that it is about 3” to 4” deep.

Step 3.

Use the sharpened end of the pencil to punch holes through the bottom of the cup.

Step 4.

Cut 2” from the bottom of the cardboard tube.

Step 5.

Make slits about 1” apart and ½” deep around the end of the tube. Fold the cut edges down, as shown.

Step 6.

Paint the tube and the inside and outside of the cup.  We mixed a blue-green paint with white to match the color of the statue of liberty.  For the inside of the cup, we used a dark brown. Let dry.

Step 7.

To make the flame for the torch, start by threading a red Glitter Stick through 2 holes in the bottom of the cup.

Step 8.

Continue adding gold and red glitter sticks and yellow fuzzy sticks through the holes in the cup until the flame looks full.  Bend and shape the fuzzy sticks to look like flames.

Step 9.

Glue the cardboard tube to the cup using the cut flaps created in step 5 for gluing.

Step 10.

To finish, use the green glitter glue to draw designs around the torch.
