Fancy making this cute pom-pom chick? It’s so easy to do, especially if you follow our step-by-step video

How to make our pom pom chick from this week’s issue.

These pom-pom chicks make a great Easter craft to do with little ones. Making pom-poms is so simple and fun, giving great results in no time and requires only very basic skills. This means that children will love to have a go at making their own, and then turning them into Easter chicks!

Our little chick is made from stitching two bouncy pom-poms together with a few bits and bobs glued on to give him a bit of a face. We’ve used orange paper and some sequins we had knocking around – you can use anything really. Buttons, beads, stickers – you name it! Then the rest is history, you’ve got yourself one loveable little chick.

Once you’ve mastered the basic pom-pom, there’s no end to what you can do with them. We love using mini pom-poms as a trim for scarves, big ones to attach at the top of homemade hats and of course making fun and friendly-looking pom-pom animal friends.

So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down to see exactly how to make your very own pom-pom Easter chick with just a few craft materials and in only a few minutes.
