Happy Spring!!


 


I've made these cute paint stick pokes
for today's Blog Hop -
using paint sticks and pre-cut wooden shapes!

Here's what you'll need to make the chick:




 Paint the beak marigold and the body
lemon yellow.  Sand edges with a sanding block.
Paint the stick lemon yellow. 




 Blush cheeks with pink powder blush
and a cotton swab:




 Use Aleene's Tacky Glue to attach beak.
Eyes are dip dots of black.


Attach body to the paint stick with
Aleene's Tacky Glue.
Tie coordinating ribbon around the neck.




I added a light pink wooden heart
just for character.

 


 These are the wooden shapes you'll
need to make the lamb.




 Paint the ears and face black.
Paint the body white.
Sand the edges with a sanding block.




Blush the cheeks with pink powder blush.
Eyes are dip dots of white, then smaller dip dots
of black.  Attach pieces with
Aleene's Tacky Glue.


Attach body to paint stick.
Tie coordinating ribbon around the neck.




Here are the shapes you'll need
to make the bunnies:




Paint body and ears brown.
Paint muzzle with a lighter shade of
brown, and nose is pink.


Blush tops of muzzle with
pink powder blush and a cotton swab.
Blush inside of ears with
the pink powder blush, as well.


Sand edges of wood with sanding block.


Attach pieces with Aleene's Tacky Glue.
Eyes are dip dots of black.
Tie coordinating ribbon around the neck.





I can't wait to poke these in the kids'
Easter baskets!!
