Another wonderful crafty DIY tutorial by PeekyMe

Let’s make a Pom Pom Easter Chick!

 

Craft supplies you need:

  • Cardboard
  • Wool
  • Plastic needle (if you don’t have one then just feed the wool through the hole using your fingers)
  • Coloured markers, textas, crayons or even washi tape to colour and make the feet and beak
  • Scissors
  • String

How to make your Chick:

1. Draw the outline of the chicken twice, as you need 2 chickens for the pom pom to form correctly.

2. Cut out the chickens and use a blade or scissors to carefully cut a small hole in the middle.

Step 1 Cut our your Chick Make your own ~ Pom Pom Easter Chick

3. Thread the wool through the plastic needle. You will need a few metres of wool, so it’s best not to cut it until you’ve finished.

4. Loop the wool through the hole and around the outside of the chicken multiple times until it’s approximately 2-3 layers thick.
5. Cut around the wool using the gap between the cardboard as a guide.
6. Once you’ve finished, place the piece of string around the chicken but in between each cardboard piece. Pull the string tight and tie a knot.
7.  Fluff out the wool and trim any long ends.
8. Colour in the feet, beak and give the chick some eyes.

All finished you have made your own Pom Pom Chick Make your own ~ Pom Pom Easter Chick

You might like to make a few chicks to hang on a mobile or a garland for Easter. You could even try doing it with a bunny rabbit outline too!

 

PeekyMe, owned and operated by a creative Australian Mum who knows the importance of spending fun and quality time with her kids; came up with PeekyMe craft boxes as a way to engage families in play activities together whilst saving them the time and resources having to pull all the supplies together themselves.

PeekyMe boxes  are designed for all occasions for boys & girls between the ages of  3-7.  Boxes can be purchased as a gift,  in party packs for themed birthdays (like pirates, princesses and superheros) or subscribing annually and receiving a box delivered to your door each month.
