Just Ducky Tennis Ball Chick - Step 1

1. To hatch your own duckling decoration, first use tacky glue to glue together two 4-inch squares of orange craft foam.

2. When the glue is dry, cut out a 1-piece set of webbed feet, then glue a tennis ball to the feet.

3. Next, glue 2 googly eyes and 2 duck bill shapes cut from more orange craft foam to a 2-inch yellow pom-pom, then glue the pom-pom to the tennis ball.

4. For wings and a tail, glue yellow and orange craft feathers to the sides and back of the duck.

5. Finally, dot nostrils on the top of the bill with a permanent marker.
