Gather all supplies. Basecoat the top one-third of three wooden spoons with flesh tone color of choice acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Download and print the Wooden Spoon Sanderson Sisters patterns. Using the pattern sheet as your guide, drawn the three collars onto the spoons with a pencil.
Basecoat Mary’s dress with burgundy acrylic craft paint. Paint Winifred’s dress with green acrylic craft paint. Basecoat Sarah’s dress with purple acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Roughly cut out the hair patterns from the paper pattern. Using straight pins, attach Mary’s hair to black felt, Winifred’s hair to orange felt, and Sarah’s hair to gold felt.
Cut out all three hair patterns with scissors. If working with younger kids, you can also cut out all the paper patterns completely and trace the hair onto the felt with a marker, then cut out inside the traced lines for a clean finished project.
Attach each sisters’ hair to the top edge of the wooden spoon using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Flip the three face patterns over and apply a layer of graphite from the pencil over the lips. Fit the face patterns onto each sister, and trace over the lip and beauty mark patterns with the pencil. This will transfer the lip shapes directly onto the spoon faces accurately.
Fill in the lips with red dimensional fabric paint, and the beauty marks with black dimensional fabric paint. Set aside to dry.
To finish the Sanderson Sisters Wooden Spoon, draw lacing on their three dresses with gold glitter glue. A series of simple “X” marks linked together. Set aside to dry.
A great craft project for tweens and teens to create on their own or with younger kids. Fun puppets to encourage hours of imaginative playtime for the kiddos.
