Craft: Chic Sheep

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

You and your child can round up a flock of these fuzzy heralds of spring: they come together in two shakes of a lamb's tail.


  • 4 black pony beads
  • 2 10-inch lengths of black yarn
  • Masking tape or duct tape
  • New 3-inch paint trim roller refill (available at paint and home stores)
  • Craft glue or hot glue
  • Black felt
  • 2 googly eyes
  • A mini pink pom-pom
  • A 2-inch white pom-pom


Chic Sheep - Step 1

Begin by threading 2 of the beads onto one of the yarn pieces and tying knots at both ends so they don't slip off.

Tape the center of the yarn to the inside of the roller refill, draping the ends over the top to resemble front legs, as shown. Repeat this step with the second piece of yarn to create the hind legs, taping them in place at the other end of the roller.

Next, cut a 11/2-inch triangle and 2 small teardrop shapes (for ears) from the felt.

Glue the googly eyes and the mini pom-pom to the triangle to create a face, then glue the face and the ears to the white pom-pom. Finally, glue the pom-pom atop the roller.
