Create your very own Wolfblood set and don't forget to print out your paper characters and presenters for the finishing touch.
Cut down the sides of the front of your cardboard box so the front folds down for your forest floor. Paint the back section black for the night sky.
Scrunch up some of the newspaper and use PVA glue to stick it to the bottom of the cardboard box to create the hill effect.
Cut a path shape out of the sandpaper and stick it to your set using the PVA glue.
Stick the green scouring pads around it for bushes, cutting them to shape when necessary. You can also use bits of the sponge to create different textures.
Paint the sponge and scouring pads to create interesting texture and break up the colour so that it looks more realistic.
Add more detail and be as imaginative as you like:
For the moon, cut small lengths of string and coat in PVA glue.
Arrange on the lid of the circular box in different sized circles.
Make a mix of yellow paint, PVA glue and some of the sand or sugar and apply onto the dry box. You might need to give this two coats for a really good effect.
Once dry you can create this very cool shading effect with a technique called dry brushing.
Put some black paint onto a dry paintbrush. Remove excess paint by dabbing on some paper so that there is very little on your brush. Lightly drag the brush over the textured surface - paying particular attention to the string areas.
This will help to break the colour up and make a more realistic looking moon!
Finally, once the paint has dried you can stick the moon to the back of your box and create the glow affect around it using more of the yellow paint.
