Crafty Stick Figures

Hi there,
 I was working on a school project when I made use of some ice cream sticks. I hope you will also enjoy working on this.

Things You Will Need:

  1. Ice-cream stick
  2. Crepe paper sheets. (Different colors)
  3. Chart paper. (White for drawing)
  4. Pencil.
  5. Markers.
  6. Glue.
  7. Clear tape.
  8. Scissors.
  9. Glitter.
  10. Beads.
  11. Tooth pick Stick or Matchstick.

Stick Fairy


How to make the dress:
First measure the crepe paper with your ice cream stick for making the dress of the fairy.I have chosen white for the dress. Now cut  a wide strip of crepe paper. Fan fold the sheet to get the creezes on the dress. At the lower end cut it in a wavy pattern. Now fold the sheet in half(horizontally) to make a real dress like appearance.

How to make the face+arms+wings :

Now draw the face , wings and arms of the fairy on a sheet of white chart paper. Use colors, paints or markers for the detailing. Cut these separately
*Don't forget to check the sizes with your stick.

How to make the fairy wand:
Take a match stick or tooth pick stick and paint it with a glittery color. Add a tiny star or any shape bead on one end. Your wand is ready.
How to assemble:
This part is easy but crucial. Insert your stick under the folds of the dress. rearrange the folds if needed. Take a piece of ribbon and tie the dress on the stick with it.You may use glue or tape for secure joining. Although mine worked fine with the tied ribbon. Now stick the face, wings and arms.Now gently join your wand on any one of the hands. I used a drop of glue.

The Fairy is ready!

For this I have used red crepe paper instead of white for the dress. Also I added Blue for the corset to give it a changed look. 

Hope you enjoy working on it. Do leave a comment. Feel free to discuss or share about the crafts.
