Wooden Chicken


Strap on your eye protection ladies, I found this great scroll saw pattern for a wooden chicken! hehe! I’m not calling this an Easter craft, to me it’s more of a Spring craft. Easter is about Jesus, really not about chicks and bunnies, but I love the “freshness” of chicks and bunnies.

The instructions say you can also make this out of paper, which would also be very nice – framed in a small frame? Cute!

I lengthened the chicken so this one is going to look less round than the pattern, and instead of relying on paint for the whole thing I decided to use Modge Podge and scrapbooking paper for the feet and comb. I think it brings it more up-to-date. What do you think? Too 1990’s?

OK – I’m off to watch my daughter at a Special Olympics basketball tournament – GO TEAM!!

Hey you, Kim said she used 1" pine for the body and comb and 1/4" for the feet and beak and a piece of wire to hold on the comb. Thank goodness she told me that, with my luck I would of used something wrong. I think I'll try and make it today and will send picture to Kim for show and tell.
Take care Kim, have fun at Abby's Olympics.
