With just a few simple supplies from the Dollar Store along with some paint, felt and ribbon transform into the cutest Flowerpot Chick Trio craft ever!
Spring is one of my favorite seasons to decorate for because I LOVE the colors and I love the newness that it brings. These Baby Flowerpot chicks are perfect for signaling the newness of life and think they’re perfect!!
Here are the materials to make your own Flowerpot Chick Trio:
- Flowerpots, 2” (3) – Dollar Store
- Kunin Classics Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Lemon Frost (1), Orange (1)
- Permanent Marker
- Rick Rack Trim – 1/2″ wide Pink, Green, Purple (or trim of choice)
- Acrylic Craft Paint – Light Yellow
- Wiggly Eyes (6)
- Glue Gun and glue sticks
- Plain Paper
- Flowerpot Chick Trio Pattern
First, you need to base coat the three 2″ flowerpots with light yellow acrylic craft paint, let dry. Apply a second coat if necessary.
If the hole in the flowerpot is small, make it larger by gently scraping with the metal blade from a pair of scissors.
Download and print the patterns for the Flowerpot Chick Trio. Cut out the patterns to use as templates. Using a permanent marker, trace six wings on lemon frost felt, and then cut out with scissors. Trace and cut out three beak patterns from orange felt. Cut and fifteen strips approximately 1/8″ by 9″ for the comb from orange felt.
TIP: Cut inside the traced line, so that your project looks neat and clean. You can also pin the paper patterns to the felt and cut out with scissors.
Adhere the wings to the right and left sides of each chick with hot glue. Attach the beaks and wiggle eyes to complete the chicks’ faces. Glue the rick rack trim to the base of the flowerpot, using the photo for placement. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
To create the chicks’ combs, gather five orange felt strips, twist several times in the center, and fold in half.
Secure the comb in the flowerpot drain hole with the glue gun and glue sticks.
To finish, trim the chicks’ combs with scissors, and fluff.
