Time slips through our fingertips so fast that we are barely able to catch up with the pace. In order to chase the time and not to be always late or just in time for the festive crafts and decorations, I decided to make some easy Easter crafts in advance for this year 😉 Here is the tutorial on how to make the super-easy pom-pom chick.

The pom-pom chick is so easy to make, even older kids can do it. Just glue up with all-purpose adhesive to the pom-pom and attach the chick’s features. Be it just a basic pom-pom chick for Easter decor, or, you can develop it into accessories. I showed 2 examples, a mobile phone charm, and a pencil topper.

I am sure teenage kids will love to have this pom-pom chick mobile phone charm and younger kids will love to bring the pencil topper to school during the Easter season.

I got the idea of making pom-pom chick for Easter while shopping at a Japanese dollar shop. I stumbled upon these colorful pom-poms, packed in plastic bags and hang on the display rack, too colorful and too beautiful to resist from buying.

Attach another pom-pom on the first pom-pom, hold in position until the glue is tacky and hold them in place (about 1 minute).
Set aside and let it dry further until it is safe to touch again about 10 minutes.

 
chick features

Cut the features from felt while the pom poms are drying; fold the felt and cut into a triangle for the beak, “D” for wings.
Glue a narrow strip on the ring of the mobile strap if you wish to make a mobile phone charm.

 
insert bead eye

Pick a place to glue the bead on the pom-pom.
Brush away the fur with your fingers and glue a bead there to form the eye.
Repeat the same to the other eye and the beak of the chick.
Glue the wings on its body too.
Finally, if you want the pom-pom chick to become a mobile phone charm, attach the mobile strap on its head.
