To form ribbon beak:

1.  Cut chick’s beak and seal the edges.
2.  Sew onto chick’s body.
3.  Heat corners of beak–pinch to seal sides together.
4.  Beak shape is formed.

 I used bright turquoise bows to turn my Spring Chicks into the new “Mr. & Mrs. Cluck”!
They are a happy couple of birds!

 You can also use the same pattern pieces to make “Mr. & Mrs. Hopper”.

 To make the cute rabbits, put the ‘wings’ on the top of the head for ‘ears’.
And instead of korker ribbon hair, use korker ribbon to make rabbit whiskers!
If you wish, add a button nose.

Happy Spring! What a great way to welcome this sunny time of year. These adorable chicks and bunnies are so bright and playful and great for adding a little splash of Spring color to your home decor. You can add them to your mantel, table or, like Janica said, to your kiddo’s Easter baskets for a little Easter surprise.

Thank you Janica for your fun and creative Spring friends. To see more of Janica’s awesome talent, stop by her blog JaniJo and say hello!

    These Spring chicks are very adorable. My daughter and I plan to make them as part of our Easter decoration.
