Step 1

Lay the jumbo craft stick across the top of the cutting board and draw a line with a pencil. Have the straight part on top of the stick be at where the curve starts towards the handle and draw the line there.

Then measure the jumbo craft stick to be 4.5” long, trimming the rounded ends off with scissors.

Step 2

Trim a second jumbo craft stick into a pointed nose shape by cutting with scissors.

Then, cut the end off of a regular craft stick. This small rounded piece will be the witch’s wart.
