It’s autumn and in the UK that means that Strictly Come Dancing twirls back onto our TV screens. Strictly is a firm family favourite – what’s not to love? Sparkles, dancing, great music and the chance to become an armchair dancing judge. We’ve made some Strictly Come Dancing Popsicle Stick Ladies so we can play along at home.
Strictly Come Dancing Popsicle Stick Ladies
You will need:
Bostik Glu Dots
Sequins, sparkles, glitter, whatever you have
Black ball point pen
How to make your Strictly Come Dancing Popsicle Stick Ladies:
These Strictly Come Dancing Popsicle Stick Ladies are really easy to make. Take your wooden popsicle stick and using a ball point pen draw a face, hair and feet on it. Colour in whatever bits you want to with your felt tip. You can add colour for the eyes and mouth if you want.
If you’re using it, wrap a piece of tin foil or coloured paper around the stick, under the face, this can represent the top of the dress. Stick it in place with your glu dots.
Take your cupcake case (or small doily or whatever you’ve got) and fold it in two. Stick this onto the stick with the glu dots. I folded the dress of my doily dancer a few times so that it would flair out.
Cut your pipecleaner into equal sized thirds and wrap one around the body, bend it into place to look like the arms of your dancer. Add any embellishments you want to make your dancer sparkle and shine.
If you felt like it, you could also make a popsicle stick panel of judges, complete with number score paddles. Bring the magic of Strictly Come Dancing alive in the comfort of your own home!
