I’m still flocking all the things! I showed you how I made flocked bunnies and custom flocked cards. Today I’m going to show you how to make adorable flocked chicks in a nest! I used styrofoam eggs to make this project affordable and light. With all the different colors of flocking powder available, you can make one in almost any color. I love how the simple addition of flocking powder makes the styrofoam look and feel plush and fluffy.
Supplies Used to make a Flocked Chick from Styrofoam:
- Large Styrofoam Egg
- Styrofoam Ring
- Chalky Finish Paint (choose a color that matches the flocking)
- Martha Stewart Flocking Powder
- Mod Podge or glue
- Green Yarn
- Metal Sheet (for the beak)
Step two: Paint a section of the painted egg with Mod Podge. Sprinkle the flocking powder on the wet glue. Repeat this until the entire surface has been covered. I covered my egg twice to give it a thick flocked appearance.
Step three: Wrap the styrofoam ring with green yarn to make a grassy “nest” for the chick to sit in.
Now you can have fun embellishing your flocked chick! I made a tiny glittered crown out of card stock. I used glossy paint to make the eyes, and made a cone out of a bit of metal sheet to create a beak. I used a bit of glue to add all these items to the chick. Once everything is dry, simply place the chick in the “grass”. Have fun crafting and creating for spring!
