    Draw a face on the back of your spoon lightly in pencil. When you are satisfied, trace over it with a Sharpie marker. Do not press the marker down too hard or it may bleed.

    To create a skirt or dress, cut a circle out of paper and wrap around the base of the spoon. Secure with hot glue.

    For a layered skirt look, cut a cupcake liner in half and remove the center. Tacky glue one liner on top of another.

    For a ballerina tutu, tie a piece of yarn around the base of your spoon. Cut 5-inch pieces of tulle and tie in knots around yarn.

    TIP: If your paper is thick and hard to keep in place, roll it around the spoon and place rubber bands around it. This will help the paper mold into a rounded shape.

    To create the hair, hot glue strands of yarn in stages, beginning with a few at a time. Once the hair has dried in place, you can create virtually any hair style. Use a rubber band to secure buns and braids. You can go back and embellish with ribbons or rhinestones.
