Spring gives us so much cuteness in the form of baby animals and who can resist a fluffy baby chick?! Made with recycled cardboard and paint, use the same technique to create bunnies and any other baby animal of the season!

Start with: 

  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cardstock
  • Shredded, crinkled paper
  • Optional: upcycled plastic lids and pom poms for eyes but cardstock works just fine too!

Create it!

Step 1: Paint cardboard and allow to dry.

Step 2: For the body, cut 7-8 strips, approximately 5 inches by 1/2 inch from painted cardboard.

Step 3: Place glue in center of strip and lay another strip on top. Continue until strips form a circle.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 2-3 with 5-6 strips, approximately 3 inches by 1/2 inch in size.

Step 5: Gule smaller circle to top of larger circle, creating head and body.

Step 6: Create eyes from cardstock or upcycled items.

Step 7: Cut triangle beak from orange cardstock.

Step 8: Glue eyes and beak to head.

Step 9: Glue shredded, crinkled paper on body for downy feathers.

Such a fun decoration and made primarily from recycled cardboard!
