Pom-Pom Chicks (DIY)

Pom_Pom_Chick_How_To

Googly eyes can make nearly anything super cute! Pop them on pom-poms with a few added details, and you’ve got an adorable little chick. Chirp, chirp! This is a fun, easy craft that’s great for kids and perfect for Easter.

I had Tracy Moore hands-on with a glue gun on Cityline making a pom-pom chick for National Craft Month. The full episode will be online after it airs on March 14th.

To make pom-pom chicks, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Pom-poms
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners (orange)
  • Felt (peach)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fabric scissors
  • Wire cutters

I got all of my supplies from DeSerres.

Here’s how to make pom-pom chicks:

  • Cut a small triangle of felt for the chick beak. (If you want, also cut two ovals for wings.)
  • Use wire cutters to cut one pipe cleaner into four even pieces.

  • Twist two pipe cleaner pieces together to form a chick foot. Bend the foot at the ankle, which will allow your chick to stand on its own. Do this again to make a second foot.
  • Glue two pom-poms together to form the chick body.

  • Glue the eyes, beak, and feet onto the chick body. Side note: When I glued the beak, I put only a small dab of glue across the long edge of the felt, then tried tucking the glued edge into the pom-pom, which allowed the beak to stick out, rather than lay flat.
  • Make lots of friends for your little pom-pom chick!
