Cut a paper plate in half.

Start painting one half of the plate with green Paint. Make long brush strokes starting from the center of the plate, like a fan, as shown.

Finish the plate by painting designs along the edge. Use yellow, purple, and light blue paint, which are colors often seen on peacock feathers.  Look at pictures of real peacock feathers to help you while painting your own design. Let the plate dry.


Step 5.

To make the body of the peacock, glue (2) medium Neon Blue Poms together and then glue to  (1) large Neon Blue Pom.


Step 6.

Cut a small piece of an orange Fuzzy Stick and fold in half to create the beak.  Glue the beak and Wiggly Eyes to finish the peacock’s face.
