Dress a Chick

31 Mar

I thought of this idea because my mom has a blog called Nerdy Chicks Rule. When I saw all of the toy chicks on sale for Easter, I thought it would be funny to dress one up like the chick on her blog.  It looks like this: 

We used wire to make the glasses, then added ribbon and sometimes beads. Then we just glued them on with hot glue. It was easy and we had fun. We don’t usually do the same things on our blogs, but this time we posted our chicks both places. If you want to see all of the chicks we made click HERE.
If you want to dress up your own chick, here is what you will need:


Toy Chick
Beading Wire
Hot Glue
Coated Wire


Make a bow or headband with ribbon, then glue it to the chick.

Wrap coated wire around round object like a paintbrush handle or a round pencil to make glasses. You will make two loops with a straight piece in between.

Bend piece in middle of glasses up or down until it looks right.

Glue on chick.

Make small loop in coated wire. String on beads.

Hook lose end through loop to create necklace. Place on chick and you are done.

For sunglasses lens: color a piece of plastic with sharpie. Cut to fit wire shape, then glue in place.

We have other ideas about how to dress up chicks, so maybe we’ll put up more pictures soon!
