COLORFUL FABRIC TREES

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Styrofoam™ brand foam cones: 6", 9", 12"
  • Spring fabrics: pastel colors
    12" square
    14" square
    10½"x8½"
  • Sheer ribbon
  • Pearl headpins
  • Thread
  • Low-temp glue gun, glue sticks
  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS:

1. Glue each pastel fabric square into sleeves by slightly overlapping opposite sides and gluing to secure. Join the 8½" sides of the 10½"x8½" piece. Slide the appropriate fabric sleeve over each cone.
2. Glue the bottom edge of the sleeves to the bottom of the cones, pleating the fabric evenly around each.
3. Gather the fabric tightly at the top of each cone and secure with thread. Trim excess fabric.
4. Tie a ribbon bow around the gathered fabric at the top of the cone and push a pearl headpin into the top to finish.

DO THE FUNKY CHICKEN

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Styrofoam™ brand foam supplies:
    4" egg
    Balls: Two 1", one 2½"
  • White feather boa
  • Orange Foamies® craft foam sheet
  • 15mm wiggle eyes
  • 18" orange plant stake or painted wooden dowel
  • 1½" sequin pins
  • Low-temp glue gun, glue sticks
  • Serrated knife
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters

DIRECTIONS:

1. Use the wire cutters to cut the plant stake or dowel in half to form two 9" legs. Insert the legs 1" into the bottom, wide end of the egg 1" apart; glue to secure. It is easier to attach the legs before adding the feathers.
2. Cut two 2" pieces from one end of the boa and set aside for the feet. Pin one end of the remaining boa to the top of the egg; wrap it down the egg and through the legs; pin again at the top. Wrap the boa around the egg in the opposite direction, down the side, across the front of the legs & pin again at the top, dividing the egg in quarters. Use remaining boa to fill in each section, pinning at the top and bottom to secure.
3. Cut the 2½" ball in half with the serrated knife. These pieces will be used for the feet. Stand the chicken upright and push the legs into the rounded sides of the half balls; glue to secure. Cut two 3" circles from orange craft foam & glue to the bottom of each foot. Glue 2" pieces of boa around each ankle.
4. Glue a wiggle eye onto the center of each 1" ball. Glue the eyeballs side-by-side to the upper portion of the egg. Cut 2" square from orange craft foam & glue adjacent corners together to form a cone. Cut the wide end of the cone to even the edges, then glue to the egg, just below the eyes.

SPRING WREATH

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Styrofoam™ brand foam eggs: Two 2½", one 4"
  • 12" extruded wreath
  • Fabric bundles, 18"x21": bright pink, purple, yellow
  • Pink ribbons: 1½" width, 5/8" width
  • 1/2" ribbons: orange, purple, yellow
  • 1¾" wooden letters
  • Paint pens
  • Low-temp glue gun, glue sticks
  • Metal nail file

DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut each of the fabric colors into 1½" squares. Lay a square of fabric on the egg and use the tip of the metal nail file to push the center of the square 1/4" into the foam. Continue to tuck squares into the egg until it is completely covered. Use a different color of fabric for each egg or mix and match.
2. Glue one end of the 1½" ribbon to the back of the wreath. Tightly wrap the wreath form, slightly overlapping each wrap until it is completely covered. Glue ends in place.
3. Center & glue the 4" egg inside the wreath. Glue a 2½" egg on each side of the 4" egg. Paint the wooden letters and allow to dry. Glue letters across the top of the wreath to spell SPRING.
4. Make a bow with long tails from 5/8" pink ribbon. Tie together the orange, purple and yellow ribbons to create another bow. Glue this bow to the center of the pink bow. Glue the bow to the bottom of the wreath.
