How To Make A Paper Cup Cotton Ball Sheep
1 – To make white sheep, first cover the outside of your paper cup with cotton balls. If you want to make different coloured sheep you can always paint your cotton balls. Perhaps you’d like some black sheep, brown sheep or even pink sheep in your flock…the possibilities are endless!
2 – Next, cut out a simple sheep head out of black construction paper. Use the photo above as a guide.
3 – Glue on some coloured wiggle eyes and a cotton wool ball to make a fluffy hair cut. Then use your white paint pen (we love Posca pens) to draw on a nose and happy smile.
4 – Glue the head onto the unturned paper cup. Then cut out two rectangle legs from black construction paper and glue them onto the front. It will make your sheep look like it’s sitting down.
5 – Cut out a green construction paper circle, an inch or two bigger than the base of your sheep. Snip all around the edge to make grass. We used herb scissors which makes this so quick and easy.
6 – Fold your grass upwards a little and then glue on some mini pom poms to make pretty meadow flowers.
6 – Sit your fluffy lambs inside their pretty grassy patch and you are done!
