This fun family of chicks will brighten up any Easter table. They could also be used as place cards – just write names across the eggs with a colored Sharpie – or scatter them across a mantel for a sweet Easter display.
Step 1: Starting with blown out eggs, dye eggs yellow. Let dry.
Step 2: Glue one yellow pom pom on top of egg for the head.
Step 3: Glue two black beads for eyes (use a toothpick or needle to place the bead in glue and then on the pom pom).
Step 4: Out of cardstock, cut out a small triangle beak and attach below eyes with craft glue.
Step 5: Out of crepe paper, cut out two wings.
Step 6: Attach wings to egg with craft glue.
Step 7: Tie a ribbon as a gentleman’s tie and slip it on the Dad egg. Cut a triangle at the end, so it looks like a real tie.
Step 8: Cut a triangle of fabric for a kerchief for the Mom egg. Attach with craft glue. Embellish any other eggs with ribbons, scraps or miniature flowers.
Step 9: Assemble the family in a basket or bowl as a Easter table centerpiece. I used real grass here, with some miniature daffodils and muscari, but you could also use cellophane Easter grass, and even crepe paper flowers, instead.
Happy Easter! Cheep Cheep!
