Instructions on how to make DIY Easter Ornaments 

1. Use scissors to separate the top layer of the wooden egg.

Work gently to ensure the two parts do not break.

If a layer of wood sticks to the back of the top layer, that’s okay. The chick will cover it up.

2.  If the top layer of the egg has spare wood blocking the flower-shaped holes, make sure to pop that out so they are clear.

3.  Use scissors to cut down the bottom part of the wooden chicken cutout.

Line it up with the whole egg to get the size of the chicken correct.
