The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and the days begin with cool mornings that give away to warmer afternoons.
Somewhere in between our very busy schedules, we yearn to do something different.
DIY’s are different and relaxing.
Spring and Easter often translate to a change-up of basic home decor, both inside and out.
Today’s project will spotlight a very simple Easter DIY, that is for interior home decor.
Fluffy chenille chicks are the perfect accent decor as they are non-denominational.
While Fluffy Chicks are often part of Easter basket and Easter Decor, they don’t tout a religious affiliation.
Instead, it’s about the new birth, new life, and cute little animals that are just precious to hold and adore.
When real-life chicks are imitated and appear as fluffy chenille decor, in hues of yellow, pink, blue and green, you will be obsessed with starting a DIY to showcase these little Fluffy Chicks.
Topiaries Aren’t All The Same ~ Fluffy Chick Topiaries
Wander through a store’s decor section now for seasonal items and you might note a lot of Egg Trees or Egg Topiaries.
Egg trees are pretty, but, really there has to be more, or so I thought when I got this brilliant idea to craft Fluffy Chick Topiaries.
I can dye my own eggs, and we do as a family.
Those eggs are then displayed on our family table when meals are served.
In effect, the idea of more eggs for decor just seems blase.
Eggs as part of a project seem to be a better idea, yet I don’t want EGGS to define my project, just accent.
Are you with me?
Instead, I am about the different, unusual, colorful and easy-to-do DIY.
Did you know that a DIY does not have to take hours to complete to look good?
Rather, it just takes a small idea, complemented by a few good items to craft incredible Easter Decor DIY’s!

Fluffy Chicks are Going To be a Hit!
I keep referring to these little chicks as petite and they are.
The fluffy chicks are only 3/4″ x 1 1/4″. Now you understand how small.
Really, they are only as big as a quarter.
My Potted Rose Ball Topiaries were only 12 1/2″ tall.
You may note, these are not huge, but decorated, they are masterful and command your eye’s attention.
Eggs. Well, I caved a little bit and added a few eggs for accent, however, I could have easily skipped them or added more chicks.
Really I made this to enjoy Easter, so you can choose how you want to do this.

- 1 Bag Small Speckled Foam Eggs #13940809 (Oriental Trading)
- Glue Sticks

- Glue Sticks
Begin by unpacking all the eggs and chicks.
This makes everything easier to work with.
Allow your Glue Gun to come to temperature.
Set glue sticks aside glue gun.
First, use your glue gun to secure eggs flush with the terracotta base of the topiary.
One by one, cover the entire upper rim, leaving about 1/2" of space between each.
Alternate colors for a more flowing pattern (Optional).
Next, try out a color scheme, testing out where to place all the chicks at the TOP of the topiary.
You do want to make a color scheme.
I tried to alternate the colors as best as I could and to not allow any of the colors to be side by side.
Begin gluing from the top.
Glue the chicks feet, then hold against the petal briefly until set.
Make sure to clear off any strings of hot glue and then repeat, until you work your way around the entire topiary top.
Next, start where the topiary is fastened. Glue one chick at the base.
Continue this pattern, however, turn the base just a bit, so the next one is stacked diagonally.
Repeat this until you have chicks all the way up the base.
