Instructions to make the wooden spoons

Step 1

Gather all supplies on your work surface. Basecoat the first wooden spoon with white acrylic craft paint for the Bunny. You can use spray paint if you find it easier.

Paint the second wooden spoon with yellow acrylic craft paint for the Chick. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Basecoat the third wooden spoon with gray acrylic craft paint for the Lamb. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Paint the bottom of the Lamb with white acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Step 2

Print the EASTER TRIO PATTERNS. Cut out with scissors. For the Bunny trace two outer ears on white felt, trace two inner ears and one nose on pink felt. Trace one beak and one head feather rectangle onto orange felt for the Chick. For the Lamb trace two ears on gray felt, one nose on black felt, and one wooly hair on white felt.

Cut out all patterns with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project. Fringe the orange rectangle with scissors, then fold it in thirds and secure with glue.

Step 3

Attach two wiggle eyes to each wooden spoon with a glue gun and hot glue sticks. Create their cheeks by dipping a sponge dabber into pink acrylic craft paint. Attach the noses and beak just under the googly eyes with a glue gun and glue sticks.

For the Bunny, glue the pink inner ear to the white outer ear and attach to the top back of the wooden spoon.

The Chick – attach the orange head feather to the top back of the wooden spoon.

For the Lamb, glue the gray ears to the right and left side of the front of the wooden spoon, and then attach the wooly hair over top of the ears.

TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.

Step 4

Attach three one inch lengths of black embroidery floss to the right and left side of the Bunny’s nose for the whiskers. Trim any long ends with scissors.

Using a permanent black marker, draw two straight lines from the nose down on the Lamb and the Bunny, for their mouths. Add two dots to the top center of the Chick’s beak.

Step 5

Tie gingham ribbons in bows, and attach to the neck of the Bunny, Chick, and Lamb securing with a dot of glue. Cut a notch from the ends of the ribbons to pre vent fraying. To finish, attach two colored buttons to the handle of each wooden spoon with a glue gun and glue sticks.

Change up the colors and embellishments on these easy crafts to create a variety of Spring animal buddies to share with family and friends. A great craft project for tweens and teens who have a passion for crafting to create on their own or with younger kids.
