Chenille Chicks - Oh How I Love You!

Editing to say:  I am sharing this project at Kellie's "Spring Fling"  - even though we did this last year, I didn't share at any link parties, so I thought I'd share now =)

I have an unnatural love for Easter chenille chicks.  They are so vintage-looking and so cute!  The Easter Bunny often leaves them in my kids' baskets, but this year I bought some for myself for a little project.  I have to say first - if you have not seen this post over at All the Small Things, you have GOT to see this, save it for next year and make the cutest little Easter gifts of all time!  Gillian is SO talented!!!

Inspired by her tutorials, I decided to make a little gift for my girls.  I couldn't find any blue chicks for Carter, so I will find them before next year and make him one.  These were super easy and fun fun fun!

I took two mason jars, some chicks, some ribbon from my obscene perfectly reasonable sized ribbon collection, and some hot glue and came up with these.

I even attached little flowers and bows in their "hair" - couldn't stop myself!  So cute! 

I added letter tags to each of them, and filled them with each girl's favorite treats - regular M&Ms for Emily, and Peanut Butter M&Ms for Lindsey.  They loved them!  I plan on bringing them out each year to put little treats or small gifts in.  Next year, I will have one for Carter - if you see any blue chenille chicks out there, let me know!

Thanks for letting me share =)
