How CUTE are these little chicks from Dollar Tree?!?!
They have ‘bobble heads’ and were in with the Easter decor. They had bunnies too, but I didn’t really care for the bunnies.
I glued pointy party hats to their heads and tied a bow around their necks.
The hats are made from some ‘ice cream come holders’ that I bought a long time ago on clearance; thinking that they would make cute little party hats! The little pom-poms glued to the top of the hats were something that I had on hand.
I stuffed the hats with crumpled newspaper to make them nice and sturdy. First a dab of glue (tacky glue) in the point of the hat and a tightly twisted little piece of paper. A bit more glue and a crumpled piece of paper, tightly tamped down with a pair of scissors. Just kept doing that, layer by layer until I had just enough space left to glue the hat to their heads. Used tacky glue for that too. Only had to ‘hold them in place for a minute of two white the glue set.
Ready to PARTY!!
