pom-pom chick wreath

This pom-pom chick wreath is so fun and easy to make. Having it in the house for spring will be will make you smile every time you walk by!
Step 1

To make the chick, you’ll need to make two pom-poms: a larger one for the body and a smaller one for the head. First, cut two 10" lengths of bright yellow yarn and set them aside. Now, while yarn is still attached to the skein, loosely wrap it around the width of your palm 60 times. Gently slide the entire bundle of looped yarn off of your hand, keeping it as still as possible so that you don’t disturb the loops.

Step 2

Knot one 10" piece of yarn as tightly as you can around the center of the bundle.
TIP: The tighter you tie the knot, the fluffier the pom-pom. Make sure you tie the knot exactly between the looped ends in order to make the pom-pom completely round.

Step 3

Snip open all the loops on both ends. Next, trim it until it’s nice and round and the yarn ends are short enough to be fluffy, not floppy.

Step 4

For the chick’s head, you’ll make a second, smaller pom-pom. Repeat Steps 1-2, but this time, wrap the yarn 50 times around your hand. Trim this pom-pom the same way but slightly smaller.
TIP: The size of the pom-poms will vary depending on the size of the hand. For more consistent pom-poms, use the Clover Pom-Pom Maker.

Step 5

Now, stack your pom-poms. Slightly flatten one side of each pom-pom and hot glue to hold them together to form your chick.

Step 6

To keep the chick upright and not floppy, hot glue the back of the pom-poms to a jumbo craft stick. Make sure to leave a portion of the craft stick exposed as you will glue this portion into the grapevine wreath.

Step 7

Cut a small diamond out of the orange felt, then fold it in half for your chick’s beak. Add a line of glue to the fold at the back, then gently push apart the yarn at the bottom of the smaller (head) pom-pom to insert the folded beak, attaching it onto the chick’s head.

Step 8

To make this chick’s eyes, add a drop of glue to each of two black mini pom-poms, then stick them onto the chick’s head, right above the beak.

Step 9

To make your chick’s leg, cut a yellow chenille pipe cleaner in half. Cut two more 3" pieces. Twist the short pieces around the bottom of each stem making the chick’s feet. Hot glue to the top of the chenille pipe cleaner and glue them to the bottom of the chick. Bend the legs to make it look like it’s sitting on the wreath.

Step 10
Finish the wreath by tying a bow with a piece of ribbon and gluing it to the top of the wreath.
