Bath Pouf Chick




by Noreen Doll.

Create a sweet bath pouf chick for a quick and easy Easter decoration.

This fat yellow bath pouf is perfect for making a soft, fluffy looking chick. And it is so easy to cut out a few parts to make his features.

I had to look a couple of places to find a yellow pouf, but finally located this one in Walmart for $1.00.

What You Need

Yellow Bath Pouf

Orange Craft Foam

Scissors

Hot Glue

What You Do

1. Remove the tag from the pouf and locate the flattest side for the front.  If you are going to hang it, make sure the loop is at the top.

2. Make a paper pattern for the beak and feet, and check to be sure they are large enough.

Part of what makes the bath pouf chick cute is the over sized beak and feet.

3. Cut the beak and feet out of orange craft foam. Cut two largish circles from black craft foam for eyes.

You can use the wiggly eyes, but I like the look of the plain black.

4. Use a dab of hot glue to attach the beak first, slightly above the center of the pouf.

5. Attach the eyes above the beak, and try not to let them get too far apart. Eyes that are closer together give a character much more appeal.

I meant for the eyes to be slightly closer, but the right one seemed to wander off to the right a bit.

6. Set the bath pouf chick on its feet to see how you want to position them.

I did one with the feet well tucked under, which makes the chick look like a fluffy ball sitting on his feet.

On the other one, you see more of the feet, which makes the chick look like he’s standing.

7. To finish your bath pouf chick, hot glue the feet in place using a dab of glue.

Tips

Don’t use too much hot glue, as you don’t want to melt the nylon bath pouf or have the glue squish out.

The loop on my chick is at the top, but I tucked it down into the folds so it wouldn’t show in the photo.

This chick isn’t sturdy enough to be handled a lot by a child. To make it more durable, you may wish to cut the parts out of felt and tack them onto the chick.
