Step 1: To start, we’re going to make two pom poms out of yarn. The large pom pom will be the chick’s body, and the smaller one will be his head.

First, tightly wrap yarn around Wing A and Wing B of the pom pom maker. I used 8 layers of yarn for the body and 2 layers of yarn for the head.

After that, repeat this step on the other set of Wings. Making sure to use the same number of yarn layers on each set of wings. This will ensure that the pom pom is even on both sides.

Step 2: Fold both sides of the pom pom maker together to form a circle and carefully cut down the center.

Step 3: Next, cut an 8-inch string of yarn. This will serve two purposes; it will hold the pom pom together and be the ornament loop if you are going to hang this Easter Chick as an ornament.

While keeping the circle intact, wrap the string around the center of the pom pom maker. Secure with a tight double knot.

Step 4: Next, gently fold back each wing of the pom pom maker. Then pull Side A and Side B apart in order to reveal the finished pom pom. After that, feel free to fluff and trim any uneven strings.

Meanwhile, if you plan to hang your chick as an Easter Ornament, now is the time to create an ornament loop. On the smaller pom pom (chickie’s head), take the remaining string from Step 3 and tie a knot. While making sure to allow about a 1-inch loop.

However, for a table top Easter Chick decoration, simply trim these two long strings flush with the rest of the small pom pom head.

Step 5: Now, apply glue to the bottom of the small pom pom (head) and attach to the larger pom pom (body). Hold in place for a bit while the glue is drying.

Nothing to bawk at here! You’ve created a versatile Easter Chick decoration that can be displayed on a tree with Easter Ornaments or as a table topper with a quick tuck of the ornament loop. After Easter, this also makes a great gift for a new born baby. This soft baby chick looks great hanging from a mobile over the child’s crib or as a decoration adorning a dresser.
