How to Hatch A Chick

I usually have some leftover yarn from making graduation lei. So, I decided to make a scrappy yarn chick for Spring.

First you need a styrofoam egg, yes, in this case the egg comes first.

I wrapped some Meriken double stick tape around the egg. Just two stirps criss cross is enough.

Then, I just starting to wind the yarn around the egg.

Okay, almost done! I slipped the ends of the yarn under some stands and knotted it to secure.

Gathered some "wings" and eyes.

Made my own chicken feet by twisting up some chenille stem.Cut a beak from foamie and glued everything onto the yarn body.

And that's how you hatch a chick! Hmmm...maybe I'll give it to my Sweetie with a sign that says "From your favorite chick!"LOL!

Sometimes these silly crafts are the best thing for the end of the week. Thanks for stopping by today and Have a Great weekend!
