Toilet Roll Chick - How to Craft Cute Easter Chicks | Tutorial




Qiuck and easy Easter DIY for families: Craft a fluffy toilet roll chick as an Easter nest for chocolate eggs or Easter sweets.

A toilet paper roll comes to life as a chick. It hasn’t hatched out of the egg by itself, but is feathered with craft glue and has a beak stuck on. Nevertheless, it can wiggle its eyes, has feet, a beak and a tail and is just waiting to be fed with Easter sweets. It takes about 30 minutes to make an toilet roll chick.

At Abenteuer Freundschaft there are 2 instructions for Easter decorations made from toilet paper rolls and an empty egg box: a toilet roll bunny, which can be used as an egg cup, and the Easter chick as an Easter nest for sweets!

How to Make a Toilet Roll Chick

Making a toilet roll chick is easy

Just glue on the feathers…

  1. Lay out the table with newspaper and paint the toilet roll yellow inside and out at least 2 times so that the colour covers.
  2. Cut the tip of one of the pyramids used to hold the eggs from the egg carton and cut it to about 1 cm long to use as a beak. Cut out two chick feet from the egg carton.
  3. Paint the beak and feet orange.
  4. The closed bottom of the toilet roll: Place the toilet roll on cardboard, go around once and leave about 0.5 cm more border and cut out. Paint it yellow and let it dry. Cut the edge in towards the centre until it forms a circle and bend the cardboard pieces inwards. Now you can press the bottom through from the inside down to the chick’s bottom until it sits horizontally tight. Normally the cardboard holds wedged so well that you don’t have to glue!
  5. Glue on the beak, feet and two wiggly eyes.
  6. Now glue on the yellow feathers as little wings, little tails and on top of the head.
  7. Fill the Easter chick with sweets. 🙂
