When you go to bed , do you always want to have just a little bit of light showing through somewhere? If you do, why not make an Art Attack spooky night light?

You will need:
  • a small torch
  • paper plate
  • plastic cup
  • newspaper
  • sticky tape
  • PVA glue
  • tissue paper or kitchen roll
  • paint
  • marker pen
  • paper
  • boxes
  • sweet tubes
  • cling film
This is the type of torch you will need for your night light - one that has tiny batteries inside it, because this stops it from burning.
Take a plastic cup that's bigger than your torch, and place it onto a paper plate, upside down.

Tape it securely into position.
Scrunch up a double page sheet of newspaper into a long sausage shape, and wrap it around the bottom of cup.

Then tape it into position.
Create another sausage of newspaper, and place it above the bottom one in exactly the same way.

Make sure that your cup is totally covered.
To make the castle, simply take a small empty food packet and a folded card roof, and stick this to the top.
For the turrets, use sweet tubes and cut a slot in each one.
Slot the turrets onto the corner of your castle, and tape securely.
For the roofs of these turrets, make some cones out of paper.

Cut a semi-circle of card like this...
...and bend them round into a cone shape.

Tape into place.
Put a cone on the top of a turret and tape it into place.
Complete all four corners, slotting sweet tubes onto each corner.

Make sure you tape everything securely.
To stop everything sticking to your castle mould, lay cling film over your castle shape, and tuck it into every nook and cranny.

Cover the whole of your castle, and press it down into the shape of the castle.
Cover the whole thing in two layers of PVA glue and tissue paper, loo roll or kitchen roll.

This can be a bit fiddly, so take your time.
Leave it to dry.
Remove your mould from the night-light.

This can be tricky, so take your time, as you don't want to break anything!
Draw in some small windows all over your castle.
Paint the castle using poster or acrylic paint. Purple colours look really good, streaking in darker colours.

Don't colour the windows in. Paint the rooftops a darker purple colour, the rocks grey and grass green.
When the paint is dry, add more detail with a permanent marker.
Finally, place your torch underneath, switch it on, and turn out the lights.

And there you have it - a night light!

Try it yourself!
