How to make a chick paper plate purse for Easter
The video on auto play is a quick 2 min video that shows you how quick and easy it is to mae this cute little chick purse! Alternatively, follow the simple written instructions here:
Paint your plate yellow
First paint the back your paper plate in yellow (or any fun chick colour!). It needs to be the back as that is where the plate curves outwards. If you do the front, you can’t bring the two sides together to create the pocket.
Once fully dry, cut your paper plate in half.
Decorate your plate like a chick
Take one half and decorate as a chick – we added feathers, a beak and a little black eye. However you can use whatever you have to hand: felt, cardboard or draw on some feathers.. or leave your chick plain.
Connect your strap and two paper plate halves together
Take some ribbon or t-shirt yarn – measure the length you want to “fit” your child and cut a strip.
Now either glue or staple your paper plates halves together – with your ribbon positioned in place. We prefer to staple as it is instant and feels more secure. If gluing – use some clothe pegs to hold it in place whilst it dries. Done! You Paper plate chick purse is ready to be used!
