Create your own adorable bi-plane using a few simple wooden pieces.
3 3" tongue depressors
Paint or UniPosca Pens
coffee stir sticks
small wooden spools or buttons and pony beads
ball headed pin
Paint all of your pieces using either paint or UniPosca pens.
Cut your propellor from the coffee stir stick. Cut the stick about two inches from one end and use your scissors to round the straight edge.
Use your pushpin to make a small hole in the middle of the stick.
Push your ball headed pin through the hole. Place a small bead on the other end of the pin.
Place a few drops of glue inside your clothespin. Lay the propellor inside the clothespin and secure. The bead should allow the propellor to spin.
Add your wings by glueing the 3" sticks on the top and bottom of the clothespin.
Cut a piece approximately one inch long off of the end of one of the 3" sticks.
Glue that on the back to be the tail.
Glue a small spool on the bottom to be the wheels. If you do not have a spool you can also use two pony beads.
