Hello there! Cathy from Party HarDIY here again with another fun DIY! Lucky for us, groundhog Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow so an early spring is imminent! Either way, spring is coming and so is Easter. For a fun craft with the kids, how about making some DIY Spring Pipe Cleaner Rings. All you need is some basic supplies to create them!
Supplies you will need:
Using a fluffy pipe cleaner, fold into a zigzag shape to create your ears.
Wrap the excess around the bottom of the ears to secure them and leave the rest loose.
Using a second pipe cleaner of the same color, create a ring. Wrap the excess from the ears back and forth to secure. You can add glue if necessary to keep it secure, but I didn’t need it.
Add the pom pom to the back using your glue gun.
Wrap a green pipe cleaner around your finger and wrap the end to close it. Flatten the top.
Add a drop of glue and place your felt flower on top.
Shape your pipe cleaner into a ring and flatten the top. Pile on two pom poms, adding glue in between.
Now its time to make the feet and beak! The easiest way is to use a small star punch and cut the bottom off for the feet, and the top for a beak.
Glue them on with a tiny bit of hot glue.
And that’s all there is to it! These rings would also be great alternatives to candy for your Easter egg hunt. Just pop them inside your plastic eggs and give ’em to the kiddos. Since they’re custom made, they’ll fit everyone in the family. Plus they can pick their own colors as well!
