Chicks just wanna have fun

Every chick wants to have a little fun now and then and these gals are no exception.

I can't say that I blame them one bit. They've been stuffed into a box for several years. I can't remember the last time they saw the light of day. They were all gabbing at once when they got outside in the sunshine.
Yes, these are another craft from the past. I thought they were adorable. The only problem is there was a flaw in the construction. They don't stand up on their own too well. If they aren't propped up with something else they topple right over. Oh well, they're still cute.

Those are very cute chicks! There legs are pretty small compared to their big body but that just makes them cuter!

Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken ... lay a little egg for me!!
How wonderful - these lovely colourful little chicks have brightened up my day! What glorious Easter decorations.

Grace said...

They made me laugh. I just can't imagine having the patience for all this , never mind gathering together all the supplies. Always amazes me that folks do this for fun...

FishHawk said...

Well, you could stake them, but that would get you in hot water with both hardcore feminists and fundamentalist Christians. Ironically, probably for the same reason.

Jen said...

How cute!

Philippa said...

They're great - maybe they do need a bit of propping up, but I'm sure they're loving being out in the daylight again!

Catherine said...

I topple right over too after I eat all my chocolate Easter eggs! :)

Duni said...

Oh they are so cute, Ann!
You seem to have a lot of adorable crafty items stored away :)
Are those spools for their feet?

Miawa said...

They are looking good. Tanyia has a good idea. You could do tutorials.

Those are just too cute! It's amazing what you can do with just a few items. You are amazing!

Anne said...

They are so cute. What an excellent job. I think they look very springy.

allotments4you said...

Hey Ann...just been playing catch up as is usual with me of late...I'm loving your Easter themed posts!!
Do you have chocolate for Easter in the states??

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

They will just have to be sitting chicks.

Ann said...

Julie since I consider myself to be rather "cheap" maybe I should wear one too...lol

ginny I'm not sure I may be running out :)

ratty I was on a roll several years back...lol

sugar not really all that big, maybe 6" high

beaded tail I did follow the directions but maybe I missed something in the translation :)

Amanda about the same time I did the rabbits

sandee they sure do

Lin Oh I am so sorry, pretend like you never saw this...lol

ldh they are super simple. Two gingham circles gathered and stuffed then glued together. Make some wings and add the legs

betsy I can make the stuff but I wish I could come up with my own ideas

reeni thanks, I had forgotten all about these

kloggers they brightened mine too, I forgot I had them

grace they seem to have that effect on me too. Yes believe it or not I do find it fun, even relaxing at times...lol

fishhawk I have enough troubles already I think I'll pass on staking the chicks

Jen, thanks

philippa I bet they do

catherine lol same here

duni yes the feet are spools. I probably should have used larger ones but live and learn

miawa yes many moons ago I made these.

Sandra yeah even if they do have to lean on something they're still cute

tanyia oh miss crafty pants I'm sure you would have no problem with these, super simple

russ I may have to work on that

out on the prairie LOL I heard that the marshmallow ones got themselves into a sticky situation

donna ya know, I can't remember where duke was

anny yep I did this too

tahtimbo what's amazing is the amount I have spent on craft materials over the years...lol

anne thanks, they do add a bit of spring to my shelf

allotments4you but of course, I have a favorite chocolate that I have to buy every year too. No other chocolate will do

sharkbytes I thought that was sitting ducks...lol

Jean said...

Dang...all the fun lines have been posted. Cute Chicks...glad they aren't the political ones from the south.:)

Tammy said...

Who cares if they don't stand alone they are very cute.

Ann said...

jean lol, I always have the same problem

tammy they don't seem to mind :)

marie said...

I love these! Whether they can stand up or not. I think I may have to give these a try. If I make them small, they'll be perfect for the little ones Easter basket. Thanks for sharing!

earthtoholly said...

Boy, would my little nephew love to get hold of those! Very cute, Ann.

Ann said...
