This Week: "STICKY" SAYS
This would be a good kids camping craft. You don't really need the mitre box. It just helps to make the cuts straight enough for the sticks to stand up. Or, you could put the eyes and speech bubble on the end of a pencil for a back to school craft.
Or, get the artwork in the "artwork downloads" column to the right. Print it out on 4" x 6" photo paper, and make sure the print size is 100%. You might need to save the file and print using a photo application.
This art is only for your personal use, and may not be reproduced. And please, if you use my artwork, send me a picture of what you made, so I can pin it to my pinterest board.
FIG. 1 Supplies: Printout, sticks, thumbtacks, sand paper, glue, glue brush, scissors, paperclips, googly eyes, scissors, small hammer, chip board (thin enough to cut with scissors), and a saw and mitre box.
FIG. 2 Cut six sticks in varying sizes approximately ½” diameter x 1 ½” long. Make sure the bottom edge is flat so the sticks stand up.
FIG. 3 Cut out the art. Glue it to the chipboard. Use the brush to get the glue all the way up to the edges.
FIG. 4 After it dries, cut around the art, leaving a small border of chipboard showing.
FIG. 5 Sand the cut if necessary.
FIG. 6 Put a thumbtack though the side of the paperclip that has one loop.
FIG. 7 Stand up your stick and decide which side should be the face. Push the thumbtack into the opposite side of the face. It should be as close to the top of the stick as it can be without showing.
FIG. 8 Hammer it in if necessary.
FIG. 9 The thumbtack should be tight enough so that the paperclip doesn’t move.
FIG. 10 Glue the eyes on the front and add the speech bubble.
FIG. 11 Repeat with all of “Sticky’s” friends.
