How to Make

  1. Take a large paper plate and turn it upside down so the white side is facing up, then cover it in a coat of gold paint. Leave to dry and add another coat if needed.
  2. Cut out the window shapes from a sheet of black paper. Then use a pencil to draw around the middle window shape on a sheet of red paper. Use this as a guide to create the curtains, Then repeat with the side windows on blue paper.
  3. Use double sided tape to stick the curtains onto the window shapes, and then stick the windows onto the paper plate.
  4. Take a sheet of silver glitter card and cut out two circles for the wheels. Use a black pen to draw the details onto the wheels, then stick them to the bottom of the paper plate.
  5. Take another paper plate and paint the middle section with the gold paint. Once the paint is dry, cut out a decorative shape to add to the top of the coach. Stick it to the top of the plate at the back using double sided tape.
  6. Decorate the rest of the coach with self-adhesive gems.
