Let's carve a small hummingbird. All you will need is a small knife, an apple and a couple of toothpicks. I would advise to use a special Thai carving knife as it works the best.

1. Cut the apple into four pieces as shown in the picture. They will be made into two wings, a tail and a body.



2. Two bigger pieces are going to be the wings.


3. Carve the edges of the wings to give them a feathery look.


4. Then work on the hummingbird's body:
