Project Instructions

Step 1 Base coat the pot and saucer with Lime Green. Allow to dry.

Step 2 Add Evergreen dots with the Spouncer™ top. Allow to dry.

Step 3 Glue the two ½" clay pots together, then glue to saucer.

Step 4 Use zigzag scissors to cut a leaf from brown craft foam. Glue leaf to the small clay pots.

Step 5 For the worm, paint one 1" wooden bead and twelve 5/8" wooden beads with Calypso Sky. Allow to dry. Thread a blue chenille stem through beads. Glue the ends to secure. For the eyes, bend the other chenille stem in half and glue it into the hole of the large bead. Roll up the ends and glue on eyes. Paint the mouth with Licorice. Tie pieces of blue fabric between beads. Glue the bottom half of the worm to the top of the apple. To make the worm stand up, hot glue the beads at the bend.
