Step 1
Paint one clothespin, two mini jumbo craft sticks and one mini craft stick using Calypso Sky acrylic paint. Let dry. 
Step 2
Paint details onto the craft sticks using Wedding Cake paint. Let dry. 
Step 3
Assemble the airplane. Begin with the top wing. Apply glue to the bottom, middle of the mini jumbo painted craft stick and press it onto the clothespin, covering the area that is notched out for the spring. Repeat for the bottom wing, placing it under the clothespin in the same position as the top wing, so they line up. Let dry.
