#Project 208: Wooden spoon puppets

Bloesem kids craft | Wooden spoon puppets

DIY Wooden spoon dolls by Wimke

It's a rainy day. Take a look in your cutlery drawer, there is always something you can use. Grab some wooden spoons and draw faces on it. I am not a great artist but with a little help from the instructions of Caroline Ellerbeck (How to draw a doll) I made 5 girls and a boy puppet out of wooden spoons. 

What you'll need:
* Wooden Spoons
* Pencil
* Black Fineliner
* Paint
* Acrylic Paint
* Paint Brushes

How to: Using a pencil, draw faces onto the spoons. Then trace over the pencil marks with the fineliner. Paint the hair and the clothes on the wooden spoon's handle with a small brush.

Step 1: Mix the black and white clay together to create one mixed marbled block of clay.
Step 2: Using the ruler create cut half way through the block of clay, at an angle so the place card will lean back closer to the table instead of vertically upright.
Step 3(Optional): Cut off the edges of the block to create a clean edge.
Step 4: Bake at 275 °F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4 in (6 mm) thickness.
Step 5(Optional): Add gold/ copper accents with paint brushes. You can paint on stripes or create paint splatter patterns by flicking the brush filled with gold paint at the block of clay.
