When I think of Spring, I think of bunnies, lambs and chicks and these pop-up spoon chicks are perfect for this time of year. They are perfect for Spring or Easter and are a super cute DIY craft.
These were inspired by some fabulous chick placeholders that I saw a few years ago on Crafts by Amanda and the fact that I found a large pack of plastic spoons in our garage.

How to make Pop-up Spoon Chicks
We painted our spoons with acrylic paint. This means that we didn’t need to sand the spoons. If you are using acrylic paint bear in mind that it can stain fabric. I love the idea of using floral foam to stand the spoons into paint like Amanda did. We just placed ours on some scrap paper and painted one side and then the other.
Mark your chicks faces on the back of the spoon with a sharpie. We kept it simple with just eyes in black and a triangle in orange for the beak.
We cut out a cracked egg on white card and then Maxi added patterns using sharpies.
Mini decided that he wanted to cover his eggs in washi tape.
The boys then cut a strip of card and taped it to the rear of the eggs to hold the spoon handle.
Then the chicks can hatch out of their eggs.
These are absolutely lovely – very cute and they look brilliant too. Am sure the kids would love making them (and they make excellent home-made gifts!)
These are brilliant, I love easter crafts they are so bright and colourful and who doesn’t love a chick. Might need to find some plastic spoons and give these a go.
Great craft and I love the idea of using washi tape on them. So colourful!
They look lovely! Real rainy day activity, so I’ve bookmarked this and I’ll be making those. Maybe with the kids. 😉
These are adorable! What a cute craft idea.
I used to make these when I was in school, cant wait to make them with the kids this year
