Baby chicks are one of the most adorable parts of the Easter season. All fuzzy and wobbly. Baby chick crafts are some of the cutest, too. And making a cute baby chick Easter craft is super easy with our Paper Plate Chick Easter Wreath!
I love how the chick in this Easter craft is coming out of the paper plate Easter egg and holding onto it with its wings. This is also a great craft to simply get creative. You can make the egg any way you want!
To make our Paper Plate Chick Easter Wreath you will need paper plates. We used the small size plates. You can, of course, use regular sized plates, but then you’d also have to make the chicks larger, too. To continue with the small plates, you will also need acrylic paints in Easter colors, metallic markers, cardstock in yellow and orange, a 2” circle paper punch, a 1.5” circle paper punch, small googly eyes, scissors, a glue stick, and thin twine for hanging.
Paper Plate Chick Easter Wreath
- Small paper plates
- Acrylic paint – purple, pink, yellow, green, etc.
- Cardstock – yellow, orange
- 2” circle paper punch
- 1.5” circle paper punch
- Metallic markers
- Googly eyes, small
- Glue stick
Begin by painting a paper plate in your choice of Easter egg colors.
Let the paint dry completely.
Once the paint is completely dry, decorate with markers. We like metallic markers because they’re brighter. You can decorate your eggs however you’d like, however. Decorate the entire egg, but remember that the middle will be cut out. We decorated the entire thing to make sure we didn’t miss any places when the middle was cut out. Plus, it was just fun. Almost like 2 crafts in one.
Next, have an adult carefully insert scissors into the middle of the plate and cut out a circle.
Then punch a 2” circle from the yellow cardstock and a 1.5” circle from the orange cardstock.
Cut the orange cardstock circle in half.
Glue just the top of the orange half circles to both sides of the yellow circle. Make sure they’re sticking out from the yellow circle.
Snip a square from the orange cardstock. Fold into a triangle and cut out for the beak. Glue to the center of the yellow circle.
Glue googly eyes above the beak.
Now, apply glue to just the bottom of the yellow circle and glue to the back of the plate, with the wings hanging over the front.
Just adhere a loop of twine to the back for hanging and you have such a sweet Easter wreath decoration! Be sure to check out all of our Easter crafts for kids at Our Kid Things!
