He was super easy to make and so much fun. I made the pom poms by using the tutorial from Ez at Creature Comforts. She has a great tutorial for pom poms and with the video she included, they are super easy to make. Check out her tutorial here. Here is my little pom pom.
Quick note to mention about the pom pom. For this project, you do not need to cut off the yarn and make it neat like in her video. You can cut off some of the extra yarn, but do not make it into a perfect pom pom.
The second part was sewing the two pom pom together, which you can do with any thread.
Next, you choose some black thread and make the eyes. I used a French knot to make the eyes. A French knot is when the yarn goes twice around the needle and then you insert it back to finish your sewing. Here is a picture of what it looks like. Sorry about the picture. My needles were in the other room, baby sleeping etc. You can find more info here.
And last, you cut some orange felt for the beak and feet if you want.
This is my quick and simplified version to making pom pom chicks. Martha Stewart has a few more tricks up her sleeve, so you check out her full instructions right here. I am quite happy with mine and my little munchkin likes to play with him anyways.
This proved to be a very easy Easter craft to make. You could even make this craft with your kids and I love the fact that you could easily make this as a last minute Easter decoration for your home.
It is just me and my little munchkin around here, so I hope we get around to making some more crafts, otherwise it is train, car, digger play time. And I bet you know which one will win. Oh yes, the train, car play time. Any big plans on your end?
Hope you have a fabulous weekend everyone!
