32 Unique Chicken Crafts

Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.


When looking for chicken crafts, making them is made so much easier if the project includes instructions. You'll find many of the chicken crafts ideas here suitable for kids to make, and also projects which you'll want to make for yourself or for gifts.

Some folks use a chicken theme in decorating their kitchens. I have a couple of friends who have everything from cookie jars to aprons to trivets and towels with the chicken theme. I hope you are able to find a couple of projects here that you'll want to make for yourself or as a gift.

The cool, and unique chicken craft shown above can be found at Tilly's Nest
