We were walking in the park when we noticed lots of dried leaves scattered around. I picked up several nice ones and brought them home.

Today’s craft is Dried Leaf Chick.

I so love this Easter project that I did with Ethan (well, most of it was ME as empty egg shells are too fragile to be handled by him). The end result is just too satisfying and cute!
Let’s start πŸ˜€

One Happy Family Chicken Eggs

You'll need some empty egg shells.

You'll need to cut out some 'chicken parts' from coloured felts and paste double layered tape on it.

Paste all the parts onto the empty egg shell. Draw two dots as the eyes.

I’m still smiling looking at those eggs πŸ™‚ If you have any Easter projects you want to share with us, please submit them here and we’ll link it back to you. Thank you πŸ™‚

There was once when I kept the eggs in my fridge for far too long that they turn bad. Then hubs jokingly said that luckily it turn bad, otherwise they will hatch! And then, I got an idea for this craft…
All I used was my old place mat and that scouring sponge? Is that what they call it? Some googly eyes and glue are needed too.
Got Ethan to outline the ‘egg‘.
Ready for assemble.
Cute? It’s a gentle reminder to quickly consume the eggs before they hatch! πŸ˜€

This is my first time doing a yarn craft. But I definitely LOVE the result of this Cute PomPom Chick! Isn’t it cute?
You’ll need this small gadget to make the pom pom.
You’ll need to do two pompoms of slightly different sizes. Then tie them up together. Lastly, decorate them and you’ll get this…Ahh.. imagine having a cute chick on your phone/fax receiver. Simply cute. ^^
