Step 1: Make the Triangle Frame
- Glue together 3 large popsicle sticks into a triangle frame shape using Elmer’s glue
- Allow the glue to dry thoroughly
- *You may want to prepare several triangle frames at once so that they are ready for other projects. Just keep them in your craft bag.
Step 2: Paint Your Sheep Craft
- Place the triangle frame on the newspaper
- Pinch the pompom with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
- Squeeze a little black paint onto the newspaper and paint the triangle frame
- Set aside and allow the paint to dry
Step 3: Cut a Paper Triangle
- Print the sheep craft template.
- Use the triangle image to cut a triangle out of the black construction paper
- Once the paint is dry, use the glue stick to attach the paper triangle to the back of the painted frame.
Step 4: Use the Sheep Craft Template
- Cut the other pieces out for your sheep, including the ears and a little bow.
- Decorate the bow with some washi tape. Cover it in the tape and then trim off the excess.
Step 5: Put Together the Farm Animal Craft
- Now that you have prepared the triangle base and have all of the parts cut out, it’s time to put it all together.
- Use the glue stick to attach the ears to the back of the triangle.
- Then switch to using the Elmer’s glue and attach at cluster of cotton balls to the top of your sheep’s head.
- Put the bow in place, either in the wool or on the neck.
- Finally, put your sheep craft eyes in place and use the black sharpie to add a couple of details, like the center of the ear and eyebrows.
