About this Project
Stir up some fun with adorable wooden spoon dolls. Dress them up in a teeny bikini, summery sundress or hip hula skirt for hours of fun.
Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
1Draw 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.
2To create the hula skirt, measure floss in the desired length of skirt and then double the length before cutting. Cut a piece of felt long enough to wrap around the handle of the spoon. Glue ends of felt together. Fold floss in half and glue to the top of the felt.
3To create the bikini, cut a rectangular shape that is long enough to wrap around the handle of the spoon. Embellish accordingly, adding pieces of the cupcake liner to create the top.
4For a layered skirt look, cut a cupcake liner in half and remove the center. Tacky glue one liner on top of another.
Use other mediums to create different types of dresses. For example, use a doily to create a layered sundress.
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.
6To 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.
