Remember these retro chicks? I have fond memories of the fuzzy guys in my Easter basket as a kid.
My wheels started spinning when I saw boxes of them in different sizes and colors at my craft store. I snagged a few and made this wreath for our front door. Love the pop of color!
Take advantage of the Easter sales and make one for yourself. Here's how to do it:
- Styrofoam wreath form
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush or foam brush
- Glue that dries clear
Paint your wreath form. This will hide any gaps between the chicks.
Arrange your chicks in close formation around the wreath facing the same direction. These little guys have feet that stick right into the foam. Hold off using any glue until your design is in place in case you need to make any spacing adjustments. When you're happy with your wreath add glue in any areas where it needs reinforcement.
To hang, glue ribbon to the back and allow to dry before hanging. I went very clean with my design, but you could have fun by adding a bow or a little sign to the outside of the wreath.
If you make one, I'd love to see it!
