Easter is almost upon us and I love seeing all of the adorable Easter decor; the bunnies, chicks, and carrots are all just too cute! I already made some super cute curious bunny flower pots for Easter this year, but I wanted to add some chicks to my decor as well, so I spent a few minutes this weekend making these adorable Easter pom pom chicks!
They’re so quick and easy to make, and they turned out so cute! Plus they’re a great craft for kids to help with! As long as an adult supervises the hot glue portion, the rest is totally kid-friendly!
How To Make Pom Pom Chicks For Easter
Here’s what you need:
- yellow yarn
- googly eyes
- orange felt
- hot glue
The first step is to make pom poms! If you haven’t made them before, they’re really simple! Start by wrapping a piece of yarn around a few of your fingers.
Keep wrapping until you have a nice thick amount of yarn around your fingers. For these pom poms I did maybe fifty wraps with my yarn. The more yarn you use the “poofier” the pom pom will be!
Once you have enough yarn, carefully remove the yarn from your fingers and wrap another piece of yarn around the middle of the loops. Pull the yarn around the center super tight and tie it in a knot to hold the yarn loops in place.
Take your scissors and carefully cut through all of the loops on either side of the center tie.
You’ll end up with a kinda lumpy wannabe pom pom, but don’t worry, we can fix it!
Take your scissors and carefully trim the ends of the yarn until your pom pom is circular. This part gets pretty messy with all the yarn trimmings, so do it over a trash can or on a table you can easily wipe clean later.
Once your pom pom is ball shaped, it’s time to add the chick features! Start by hot gluing two googly eyes onto the pom pom.
Then cut a small “bunny ears” shape out of the orange felt to use as the feet.
Glue the feet onto the bottom of the pom pom so that the tips of the “toes” just stick out past the pom pom body. Cut a small triangle out of orange felt for the beak and glue it on under the googly eyes. And you’re done!
They’re so quick and easy to make; you should make a bunch!
