craft stick chick

This crafty chick is sure to make anyone smile! Some craft sticks, paint and feathers make a clever project for kid of all ages.
Step 1

Lay out seven crafts sticks with the tops and bottoms even, then glue a mini craft stick across them near the top and one near the bottom to secure them together.
TIP: ADULT: Hot glue will speed up the project.

Step 2

Turn the craft sticks over so the mini sticks are at the back. Paint the crafts sticks yellow. Let dry.

Step 3

Choose feathers to glue on to the back of the craft sticks on either side and one for the top.

Step 4

Glue on two wiggle eyes, then cut a small triangle for a beak from the adhesive foam and stick on.  Let dry.

Step 5
Cut an orange chenille stem 4" long and bend in half to form a "V". Glue the point of the "V" to the center, bottom, back of the craft sticks. Cut two pieces of orange chenille stem 1" long and bend into a V. Glue it onto the end of the chenille stems to create feet for your chick.  Let dry.
