Beaded Chickies

I found this fun little project on Family Super easy to make, and inexpensive to boot, make these the perfect kiddo craft for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Make a bunch of them to scatter around the house have Spring cheer everywhere you go.

  • 2 round wooden beads (we used one 16-millimeter and one 25-millimeter bead) with holes large enough for a doubled Pipe cleaner to fit through
  • 6-inch pipe cleaners
  • Acrylic paint
  • Craft feather
  • Fine-point marker
  1. First, paint the beads with acrylic paint. When they have dried, bend a 6-inch pipe cleaner in half, sandwiching the end of a tiny craft feather in the fold.
  2. Thread the smaller bead onto the opposite end of the pipe cleaner and slide the bead up to hide the bottom of the feather.
  3. Thread the larger bead onto the pipe cleaner, then bend the ends of the pipe cleaner into feet.
  4. Finally, use a fine-point marker to give your little chick eyes and a tiny beak.
