Step 1: Paint the top and bottom of the popsicle

Paint the top half of your lollipop stick in a peach colour and the bottom half in the colour that your elf’s outfit will be.

This little elf is going to be dressed in green so we painted the lower half of our lolly stick in that colour.

Step 2: Paint on some hair

Near the top of your stick paint on a hairline.

The top of the stick will be covered up by the elf’s hat and so there’s no need to paint this bit. You just need to paint a little fringe of hair that will peek out under his hat.
