Description

This beading pattern will teach you how to make my Superduo Easter chick beaded box. At first glance, you might not realise this is a box at all. But, look closer…the chick lifts up to reveal a chocolate mini egg underneath it!

For those of you who want to ponder the ‘chicken or egg’ debate, I’m not sure which came first, but I’m going to tell you more about the beading project!

Materials

This beaded box simply needs superduos and size 8 seed beads. You have a wonderful choice of colouring for both your chicks and the grass on which they sit.

I strongly recommend Superduos (not Twin Holes) as their shaping is the best for creating this type of structure. But it could also work if you scaled down to use miniduos and size 11 seed beads. Although, you would not be able to fit a chocolate egg in that size of box.

You will also need beading thread. I recommend Fireline as it is critical that you get excellent beading tension. That is what keeps your box self-supporting and holding its shape.

Experience and Techniques

I have suggested this is an intermediate project because the tutorial assumes that you are already familiar with basic Peyote stitch. Also, working with two-holed beads.

However, the thread paths are very simple, and I have linked to additional help on this website. So, anyone who is less advanced, but happy to work things out for themselves, should be able to give this a try.

About the Superduo Easter chick beaded box

The finished size of your Superduo Easter chick beaded box is about 3″ (7.5cm) high by 3″ (7.5cm) wide. That measurement is the highest point, at the chick’s head, and widest point across the grass base. As I mentioned at the start, it is sized to hold a miniature chocolate Easter egg.

This is a quick project to make. So, it would be great as a way of giving some different Easter gifts to friends and family.

You can also add a few personal touches, getting creative with some additional decoration if you wish. Perhaps a few flowers on the hat or in the grass? Maybe you add a ribbon to the bottom of the hat? I expect you will have plenty of great ideas of your own!

And, this pattern pairs very well with some of my other Easter themed ornaments. You can find them all at this link.
