Step 7: Make the Chicks
You will need bump-chenille stems, 1/2-inch pom-poms, clear fabric glue, pink paper, black embroidery floss, and small colored feathers. Each chick requires 1 bump-chenille stem with 4 bumps.
Snip 1 bump off each end of stem. Using the tweezers, tightly roll 1 bump into a spiral, leaving the skinny end straight (this is the chick's head). Repeat with other bump, then flatten the spiral somewhat between your fingers to form the chick's tail section.
To make the body: Trim skinny ends from remaining section of chenille stem (so you have 2 bumps joined by a skinny section). Using the tweezers, roll each bump toward the center into a tight spiral; stop just before skinny portion. Bend the skinny portion between bumps to form a W shape. Turn both spirals so their flat sides are facing. Wire the chick's head and tail pieces to the W portion of the body piece using their skinny ends. Insert pom-pom between the 2 body spirals to form the breast; secure with glue.
To make the beak: Fold paper in half, and cut out a small triangle shape; affix with glue.
For each eye: Make a knot from 4 strands of black embroidery floss; cut excess thread from knot. Attach with glue.
To make the tail: Trim off tip of a feather, and glue it to chick's tail end.
