Today I’m sharing my Easter Chick Wreath Tutorial. Remember these retro chicks? 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 make it:

Chick Wreath


Easter+Chick+Wreath+1
SUPPLIES:

  • Chicks
  • Styrofoam wreath form
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paint brush or foam brush
  • Glue that dries clear
  • Ribbon

Eater+Chick+Wreath+2
Paint your wreath form. This will hide any gaps between the chicks.
Easter+Chick+Wreath+3
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.
Easter+Chick+Wreath+4
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.
Have a wonderful Easter! Stop by and say hi sometime!

    I just burst out laughing like a complete nutcase. I happen to have one box of chicks around, nowhere near enough to make this wreath, but they make me so happy I might just have to go and buy 5000 more to get this project done. Cute is not enough to describe it!

      Hey! I love the wreath….but I am having a hard time finding a store that sells the chicks. Do you know where I could buy them?
