Dancer Craft - Directions:

STEP 1 -  Paint your popsicle sticks:

To start, take a large popsicle sticks and three regular sized popsicle sticks along with your paint. Pick any flesh colour you want and paint the sticks. Remember to wait for them to dry before moving onto the next step. 

Alternatively if you don't want to wait for the paint to dry you could use the popsicle sticks the color they are.

STEP 2 - Cut the popsicle sticks:

Take the large popsicle stick and use your scissors to cut it below the mark halfway (this will create your ballerinas body). Then, cut about ¼ off two of the regular-sized popsicle sticks (this will create the ballerinas legs). Cut the final regular sized popsicle stick in half (this will create the ballerinas arms.

STEP 3 - Start putting your ballerina's body together:

Take your three popsicle sticks and turn them over so the painted side is down. Add hot glue to the back of the big popsicle stick and then attach the two longer regular popsicle sticks to the bottom (legs) and the two shorter regular popsicle sticks higher up (arms).

See image below as a guide.

Once the glue has dried turn the popsicle sticks over. It will look like an upper body with two arms and two legs.

STEP 4 - Add details to your dancer:

Give your ballerina some cute ballet shoes! Draw them right at the bottom of the ballerina's legs using paint pens. Make it even cuter and add extra details like ribbons.

Color the upper body to create the top part of your dancers dress. Then draw on hair, lips, and eyes.

Once you've made sure the paint from the paint pen has dried, add a little bit of hot glue right on the top of your ballerina's head and attach a pom-pom with a similar color to her hair.

STEP 5 - Add a cupcake liner tutu:

Now, it's time to add the tutu dress! To do this, take the cupcake liner and fold it in half. Then, flatten it against a hard surface gently. 

Glue the cupcake liner onto the lower part of your ballerina's body and... your ballerina is ready!
