Keep your boiled breakfast egg cozy and warm on Easter morning with a bright chick egg topper. The body is created with felt that is sewn together with a foam beak and beads are attached for the eyes. No eggs to cover, don't worry: it can double as a puppet!

What You Need:

  • Two 9-inch squares of yellow felt
  • Orange foam
  • Black bead or tiny button for eye
  • Red or orange cotton thread
  • Sewing needle
  • Dressmaking pins
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Orange marker

What You Do:

  1. Stack the felt so the corners are even. Pin the top and bottom with dressmaking pins so they don’t move.
  2. Draw the shape of your chick head on the top layer of felt with a marker. Use as much space as possible. The shape should be oval-like with a flat bottom. Cut out both pieces of felt at the same time. Lay one felt shape to the side.
  3. Make a mark on the felt where the eye and beak will be located.
  4. Thread the needle and tie a knot at the end of the string. Poke the needle through the mark that was made for the eye and sew the bead or button for the eye on the opposite side of the felt. When the bead is securely in place, knot the thread on the opposite side from the eye and cut the string.
  5. Cut out the beak from the orange foam and glue it in place on the inside of the felt (opposite side from the bead), with the glue. Allow to dry completely.
  6. Layer both pieces of felt on top of one another. The bead eye should be on top. Place pins around the edges of the cut pieces of felt so they match up evenly and stay in place.
  7. Sew both pieces of felt together along the edges. Sew through the orange foam beak all the way to the edge of the felt, leaving the bottom of the felt open for the egg. Try to keep the stitches even.

Cover your egg with its new cozy holder, a cute way to decorate the table while celebrating Easter!
