Today I made these little guys for something special we are doing this weekend. They are super cute,
and easy to make.
I started with a bag of plastic egg from the dollar store. I decided on using blue for the bunnies, and yellow for the chicks.
I still had some chenille stems from when I made my Bunny Treat Boxes. I used a half of stem for each ear.
I love that these particular eggs had small holes exactly where the ears should be. The chenille fit perfectly in the holes, so I didnt even have to glue it.
Disclosure: the link to the 4 mini heart punch is an affiliate link. I think my punch has been discontinues but I found something very similar
I used a 4 heart punch to punch small hearts for the nose. I then hot glued on all the pieces, such as the eyes, nose and tail to the egg. I used white craft foam for the feet.
To make the chick's beak, I folded a piece of orange pipe cleaner in half. Then I folded it again into a V shape and hot glued it onto the egg.
I thought I had a picture of the legs, but I must have missed taking it. These eggs also have holes on the bottom of the egg there were perfect for the chick's legs. I used a longer piece of pipe cleaner for the leg, and then twisted a smaller piece around it to form the feet. I used yellow craft foam the wings. I would have added a feather, but I did not have any yellow ones in my supplies. To keep the eggs upright, I places some dollar store accent gems inside the egg.
I can't wait to show you what I planned for these guys in just a few days.. Stay tuned!
