Step 10.

Stick the ends of white feathers through the middle of the clothespin and around the front of the clothespin and glue to create a flowing skirt.



Step 11.

Glue small silver acrylic jewels to the ice skater’s hair to create a tiara.

Draw a face using markers.


Step 13.

Glue a neo-magnet to the bottom of the clothespin.
