These little chicks are just two pompoms glued together. If you can't find wool pompoms, I'm sure any type would still work, though these are exceptionally adorable. I love the idea of placing them in an egg carton--a perfect centerpiece for the kids table on Easter!
Here's a little step by step to making a pom pom fluffy chick.
Step 1: Make two pom poms, one slightly larger than the other. I've used the Clover Pom Pom Maker gadgets. They make whipping up pom poms very quick and easy. When you tie around the center of the pom poms, do not cut the wool ties off.
Step 2: Separate the wool ties, matching one tie from one pom pom with a wool tie from the other pom pom. Repeat with the other ties.
Step 3: Tie the pom poms together, pulling the wool ties tight so the pom poms sit very closely to each other.
Tie a few knots to hold the pom poms together. Snip these wool ties off close to the pom poms. You now have the body of the chick made.
Step 4: Add a beak and eyes to the face of the chick. You can also add little wings if you would like to the body of the chick. I've used felt for these little pieces, cardboard could also be used. A little craft glue will hold these bits in place.Pin It
