We’re showing you a few Easter crafts using items you probably already have at home.
WBOC Interactive Marketing Coordinator, Lauren Hitch, shows us how to make chicks, bunnies, and butterflies using wine corks, cupcake liners and egg cartons. Lauren found these craft ideas at CraftMorning.com.
- 2 Cupcake liners
- Start by opening up 2 cupcake liners and fold them in half. Then fold them again and glue them together so it looks like a bow tie.
- Clip the clothespin over the cupcake liners and add a strip of glue on top. Sprinkle on some pretty glitter and add some string for the antennas if you want to (it’s tricky to glue them on that’s why we only did one!)
- Wine corks
- Yellow paint
- Orange paper
- White paper
- Dip the end of the wine cork into yellow paint and stamp it on a white piece of paper.
- Use the edges of the wine cork to make wings for the chicks.
- Once the paint dries, draw legs and eyes using a marker.
- Cut a triangle out of a folded piece of orange paper to make the chicks beak and glue it on the chick.
- Can use this as an Easter card!
- Egg carton
- Big yellow pom-poms
- Googly eyes
- Orange paper
- Paint (optional)
- Hot glue gun
- Start by hot gluing eyes and a beak onto the big puffy yellow pom poms to make the chicks. Using a sharp scissors or knife, cut out individual egg carton cups. Trim around the edges so they are all level.
- Take a knife or scissors (knife is easier) and make the egg shells “cracked” (cutting triangles out of the egg carton).
- Put some glue in the bottom of the cup and stick the chick inside. The tops fall off super easy so you could hot glue them or just have the kids play!
