Craft Stick Ghost:

1. Paint your craft stick white.

2. Add two small black circles for your eyes.

3. Add a larger black circle for your mouth.

Yes, it is that easy.

To help with the details, use the smallest paint brush you have for your black paint. Using a large paintbrush will make it hard. So, the smaller the paint brush, the easier to paint the details.

Craft Stick Mummy:

1. Paint the craft stick black.

2. Use your white paint to paint zig-zags along the length of the entire craft stick. Make sure to let a bit of black peek out between your stripes.

3. Add a couple of small googly eyes to finish your mummy. If you don’t have googly eyes, use your white and black paint to make your eyeballs.
