Ok it is time to start pulling out your Spring and Easter decorations. I pulled a few of mine out and I came across a cute chick that I bought a few years ago. Looking at the chick got my mind going and I think we can create something similar.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. One smooth styrofoam egg
2. One small smooth styrofoam ball ( the one I’m using is 1.5 in)
3. Hot glue
4. Cotton balls ( I coffee stained mine)
5. Wooden kabob stick
6. Wire ( I’m using a 20 gauge rusty wire from our website)
7. Wire cutters
9. Burnt Orange colored paint by DecoArt
10. Yellow paint ( I’m using Marigold and Cadmium Yellow by DecoArt)
11. Paint brush
12. 2 Small Black Beads
The first step is to attach the styrofoam ball to the styrofoam egg. I used a piece of the kabob stick.
I also added some hot glue to help hold them together.
The next step is to create the legs for the chick. I cut 6 pieces of wire about 5 inches long.
You will want to twist 3 wires together and create the legs as shown in photo above.
I had to trim the top if the legs to be a little shorter. You will stick the legs up into the egg as shown in photo above.
I cut another piece of the kabob stick to form the beak to my chick. You will stick this into the small styrofoam ball as shown in photo above. I added some hot glue to help secure it in place.
I rolled apart the cotton balls as shown in photo above. If they do not roll apart you can just pull them apart.
Once I had my cotton balls all pulled apart I then started adding them to the chick. I started from the back and then came up and over the head.
You will add hot glue to the styrofoam ball as you add the cotton balls.
Once I had the chick completely covered with the cotton balls I then painted it yellow.
Once I had the chick painted yellow I then created two wings out of the cotton balls.
I glued the wings onto the chick.
I decided to add just a bit more cotton ball to the head of my chick.
I completely covered the chick with yellow paint. Once I had the chick painted yellow I then painted the beak orange.
I glued the small beads on for the eyes and I tied some ribbon around the neck. This is so easy to make and I just love how it turned out. I hope you will get creative and give this a try.
