“OOMPY” pick: Chick-n-Bottle


This feathered friend can be a party decoration as well as quench your thirst!!  The cost to make it is nothing to “Bock” at either …it’s super cheap…or should I say “Cheep” !!  Make several and they can be lined up in a row as a table decoration for Easter, a “Chick” themed party or Barnyard party!!

  • 2-3 White craft feathers
  • 2 Googly eyes
  • 1/2 inch (enough for a beak) Orange craft foam
  • 1/4 of an Orange pipe cleaner

  1. Heat hot glue gun
  2. When glue gun is ready…
  3. Glue feathers onto one side
  4. Glue Googly eyes to opposite side
