Spring Cuties

We haven't done this project for a while, and our nature table was a bit lacking, so little spring people (fairies? root children?) it was.
Out came the wooden people, the acrylic paints, some acorn caps and some wool roving.
On came the music - the Duhks, at Eliza's request - and we were off.
The girls draw so much that we can go for quite a while without a more guided art project. I forget to get out the paints or clay.  This was just right for today.


Needle felting some hats...

Eliza's littles
Ani's littles
Eliza has such a knack for character - the bangs, the faces...I love what she did.

I called them "spring beauties", like the flowers, but Ani thought "spring cuties" was more fitting. I think she's right...

Where do you find the wooden people? I haven't seen them in my craft store.

hi sparklee! i got the wooden people from Hobby Lobby, and i think i've seen them online as well at Casey's Wood Products (careful - so many very cute wooden things...).

They're sooooo cute. We haven't tempted any, yet, but now that I know they're at Hobby Lobby, I'll put them on the list! :)
I love the bangs and blue hat and brown hair, too!
(Could be because it vaguely resembles mine.)

Cute! making these with the kids is a great idea. I'll have to see what my kiddos come up with.
