Here is what you need to make your own Spoony Ant:
* Two Plastic Spoons-same size/style
* Black Paint
* Wiggle Eyes
* Three Black Pipe Cleaners
* Paint Brush/Paper Plate
* Hot Glue Gun
Now the way we did our craft was a little different than what we did at the library event. They used already made black spoons. But since I didn’t have the desire to go buy a pack of black spoons, I decided just to paint the white spoons we already had on hand. Plus it added another crafty step that kept us busy in the process.
First things first, hot glue your two spoons together like the above picture. This will be the ant body.
Next you will want to paint your spoons black, covering the entire area of the spoons. Let dry completely.
Once dry, give your ant the power to see. Using hot glue, glue some wiggle eyes on, on either end of the spoon pair.
As for your final step, you are going to take your three pipe cleaners & wrap them around the center of the ant. Bend them to make them look like legs.
And that’s it! Simple right? You could also do this craft in red, for red ants.
That my friends is why we attend events like this. They inspire me and in turn, I hope to inspire you.
So now you know how, so I hope you make one too!
