Pom Pom Yarn Chicks Easter DIY

by MFPS Team on Mar 28,2015 - No Comments »

Pom Pom Yarn Chicks

These adorable pom pom Easter chicks are perfectly spring, festive and easy!

 

start-by-making-your-pom-pom-800x533

Step 1: Start by making out yarn pom poms. There are  many different techniques out there to use (i.e.  using a fork, cardboard, etc).   Feel free to find a technique that suits you and your budget.

Step 2: Once you’ve made your pom poms, you’re going to cut your pipe cleaner into small pieces for the Easter chicks feet and beak. You don’t need to measure these pieces, just be sure the pieces are big enough to bend into little feet (as pictured below) and that you can fold the beak in half so that there isn’t a sharp piece of the wire poking out of his little face.

Step 3: Now we’re ready to assemble.  You’ll place a dab of glue on each foot and push it into the pom pom and do the same with the beak . You can use a glue gun to attach all of the pieces to keep the assembly time quick and easy.  A low-temp glue gun is safe and has a fast drying time.

Step 4: Glue on your wiggly eyes — and we’re done!

How adorable are these sweet little Easter chicks?  They would make great little favors for an upcoming Easter party or dinner, right?  You could even add them to little Easter baskets as well.

by MFPS Team on Mar 27,2015 - No Comments »

Wooden Bunnies

These a-DORK-able wooden bunnies with their long floppy ears and buck teeth for Easter are too cute!!

 

DSC_0052

Step 1: Cut your 2x4x8 so that you have a 12 inch, a 10 inch and an 8 inch long piece of wood.

 

DSC_0083

Step 2: Sand down all the edges until smooth.

Paint the blocks brown. Let dry, paint with crackle medium, only let dry about 20 minutes- following directions on crackle medium bottle.

DSC_0087

Step 3: Now use cream paint and go over the crackle medium with a well loaded brush in one stroke, making sure NOT to touch the paint that you have added to the blocks.

DSC_0085

Step 4: Allow the paint to dry. Take the basswood and draw out a rounded edged triangle, this will be the nose, you will need three.

DSC_0086

Step 5: Sand then paint them with a couple coats of pink paint.

DSC_0121

Step 6: Cut three pieces of black wire for each bunny. Cut at about 10 inches long. On both sides, zigzag the wire with hands, doing all three pieces at the same time. Give them a twist right in the middle to hold them in place.

Use pink chalk or a woman’s blush with the medium pompom to create ‘cheeks’ on the bunnies. Add a small rectangle out of the white felt with a thin cut up the middle about half way into the rectangle, these are the teeth. In the middle of those cheeks, glue your bunny whiskers, teeth  and top with a pink nose.

Step 7: Use the same medium pompom to add black paint dots for eyes.

Then use a small pompom to add white paint dots to the cheeks, nose, and eyes.

DSC_0116

Step 8: To create the ears. you will cut a 14×2 inch piece of fabric with the pinking scissors, rounding the ends. Tie a knot in the middle of the ears, then cut two oval pieces of pink gingham about 1.5×5 inches. Use a fabric glue to adhere the pink gingham to the cream fabric. Then use hot glue to glue the buttons and ears to the bunnies.

DSC_0013

Step 9: Next is just to add ribbon and buttons to decorate your bunnies.

DSC_0011

Step 10: Each bunny is different. Add the ribbon bow at the side of the ears or in the middle of them.

Or loop a bow around the middle of the bunny.  Anyway you decorate them, they are gonna be cuties!

Children could have a lot of fun drawing the grass and the flowers, or even sticking down fabric or paper flowers instead. And why stop at 2 little bunnies, you could have a whole field of them if you wanted to. Or you could relocate your little bunnies to different settings – why not a beach if you live by the seaside, to make them a little more personal

Down the Rabbit Hole Easter Card

You can image this little easter bunny is hiding easter eggs down that hole, and bunny tails are just so cute.
