These super cute clothespin chicks by One Little Project are perfect for Easter. To create them you’ll need:
- Glitter craft foam
- Small scrap of yellow paper or card stock
- Small scrap of craft foam or cardboard
- Crafter’s Tape
- Black and orange gel pens
Just follow these steps:
- Cut out a little rectangle from the craft foam and trim off the edges to create an egg shape.
- Cut in half with a zig zag. It’s recommended to draw the zigzag on the back with a pencil first.
- Pinch open the clothespin. While it’s open, add a small strip of crafter’s tape to 3/4″ of the side, front edge of the top and bottom where the egg is going to go.
- Lay the egg upside down on the table, making sure the top and bottom egg pieces are lined up and together.
- Carefully press the clothes pin onto the back of the foam egg so that the opening in the clothespin lines up with the opening in the cracked egg. Try to line it up so that the end of the clothespin where your chick is going to go is in the middle of the egg.
- Cut out a tiny chick shape from yellow paper.
- Draw on a beak and eyes using the gel pens.
- It is recommended, but ooptional, to take a tiny piece of craft foam and use crafter’s tape to attach it to the back of the clothespin where the chick is going to go. This helps making it easier to open and close the clothespin.
