These Little Spring Chicks
Were Inspired by....
These sweet Made In Japan Vintage Chicks
that I spotted and fell in love
with on E-bay the other night....
And with my budget being what it is
right now and just knowing
there was no way I could justify
being the highest bidder.
I thought well come on Diane you could make
them our at least give it a good try...
So last night late (around midnight) I sat in my studio
and thought just how could I make
I had this Egg carton on the shelf ...
Yeah I know what your thinking
what the heck do I have an egg carton
hanging around for? Well really they do come
in handy when I dust a bird with glitter
I use it to mount it on to dry.. so thats why..
Anyway I just started to tear
at it then cut at it and give it the look
of a cracked paper egg.
And then I got out the paint and gave them
a quick paint job!
Outside and inside....
Now for the base instead of cutting
paper circles I used some poker chips...
Are you still with me?
And I gave those a quick coat of paint
Well then I did a whole bunch of other stuff.
Like make dinner do the dishes, help my husband find
a tool he was looking for, until tonight I got back into
the Studio and brushed them
with a thin coat of white glue
and then sprinkles of Glitter!
I then glued on the Base
added some paper easter grass
and then placed the embellished chicks
in their nests...
And there you have it
Totally Vintage Inspired...
And I used everything I already had in my
Supply Stash... Cute aren't they?
