Spring Wreath!

Some of you followers may recognize the base of this wreath since it is the same as the base of the winter wonderland wreath in a past post.  I used an old frame and added some grapevine wreath to form the round wreath in the center. 

Since this is the same then I will not bore you with the details of the construction of the base of the wreath.  So onto the next step! 
I found a cute little clipart of a chick that used circles and I knew that I had a circle of wood so I decided to put this cute little chick on the spring wreath.  Here is a picture of the items used for the chick!

There is one googly eye, one chipboard heart for the beak and a chipboard scalloped circle for the wing.  The legs were made using some twigs I had left over from making the grapevine wreath.  I painted it a sunny yellow and then hot glued the legs and the other parts on.  Here is a close up of the chick on the wreath.

Last step to the wreath was to put a white tulle bow and a twine bow on the top. 

I love how simple and cute it is.  Hope you enjoy this craft too.
