Using your paint brushes paint; 8 lollipop sticks Orange, 8 White, 4 Green and 5 Black. Only one side of each lollipop stick needs to be painted.
Once finished, allow them all to dry.
Arrange the painted lollipop sticks facedown. We arranged them as; 4 White together, then 4 Orange, then 4 Green, another 4 Orange and finally 4 White.
Leave a fingers width between each coloured group of 4.
Using the PVA glue and spreader, stick the coloured groups of 4 together.
Secure using the 5 Black painted lollipop sticks as struts, placed horizontally. Stick them on using the PVA glue and spreader. (See image as guidance).
Once the PVA glue has dried, turn over and decorate with the Wiggle Eyes.
Finally, using the Black Fibre Pen, create expressions for your Halloween characters.
