Gather all supplies. Remove the battery-operated votives from the packaging, pull the tab in the back, and make sure the flame lights. Paint the base of the chick votive with yellow acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Paint the flame of the yellow chick votive with orange acrylic craft paint. Paint the flame of the white bunny votive with pink acrylic craft paint. Let dry.
Now, let’s add the faces! The chick and bunny votives each get two googly eyes. Two different size googly eyes give the project a whimsical look. Add cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into pink acrylic craft paint and dotting on either side of the bunny’s nose and the chick’s beak.
Download, print, and cut out the EASTER VOTIVE PATTERNS. Trace the bunny’s outer ears onto white craft foam, the inner ears onto pink craft foam, and the chick’s feather onto orange craft foam. Cut out all patterns with scissors. Fringe the chick’s feather by cutting slits around the edge of the craft foam.
Using a glue gun and glue sticks, attach the feather to the top of the back of the chick votive. Glue the white outer ears to the top back of the bunny votive, and then attach the pink inner ears. Use the photo for placement. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Add the bunny’s whiskers and mouth with a permanent black marker. Tie two bows with colored baker’s twine and glue one to the chick and one to the bunny.
Get the kids involved and have a fun family craft time together. Add these Easter Votives to your table decorations or string them together to create a cute banner!
