Quick Craft Pipecleaner Chick or Bird


A quick and easy pipe cleaner chick or exotic bird craft idea, simply made by shaping a pipe cleaner into an 'S'. 

Keep the colours traditional yellow and orange for a perfect Easter inspired chick.

Use bright coloured pipecleaners and add a few extra feathers (maybe some self adhesive gemstones ) to create exotic peacocks or birds of paradise!

This is a great craft for kids of all ages, but younger kids will require adult supervision.

Check out the How To tab for instructions and use the pictures as a guide.

Although we used a glue gun you could use self adhesive googly eyes, glue dots or a PVA glue, like Anita's Tacky Glue.

How to Make It

Use our photos as a guide for creating this idea:

  1.  Shape the pipe cleaner into an 'S' by rolling it into a coil at each end – respectively one way and the other.
  2. Cut a beak from a folded piece of card. Glue it onto the head. Glue wiggle eyes onto each side of the head and two feathers onto the body for the tail.
  3. Attach a piece of string at the top, theading it through just underneath the outer part of the pipe cleaner.
