What will you make with all the colorful pompoms that are easily found in your craft room? Since Easter is just around the corner, I decided to make some easy Easter crafts. Here is the tutorial on how to make the super-easy Chick Pom Pom, so easy that kids can do it too.
The chick pom pom is so easy to make, that 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 chick pom pom for Easter while shopping at Daiso, 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 buying.
I am sure I will have more Easter crafts this year as I still have time to make them :). In the meantime, view the following Easter-related patterns and tutorials from the previous year:

How To Make: Chick Pom Pom
1. Pom Pom – Medium size, any color
2. Felt scrap
3. Black beads – 2, small
4. Mobile phone strap (to make a mobile phone charm)
5. Pipe Cleaner (to make pencil topper)
1. All-purpose quick dry adhesive
Gather all the materials and tools needed as mentioned above.
Apply some glue to the top of the pom-pom.
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.
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.
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.
Pom Pom Chick Pencil Topper
To make the basic pom-pom chick become a pencil topper, just twist a pipe cleaner onto a pencil.
Remove from pencil and apply glue to one of its ends.
Insert the glue end and glue the pipe cleaner to the bottom of the pom-pom chick. Set it aside to dry completely.
Optional: Add a jingle bell to the pencil topper to let it jingle while writing.
