Kids Craft: Make a Super Simple Woolly Sheep Card

A few weeks ago we made a really cute Woolly Sheep Pencil Topper and we were bitten by the sheep crafting bug. This Woolly Sheep Card is really simple to put together and looks very effective. You could send this card for all kinds of occasions, everyone loves a homemade card don’t they?

Our family have a particular affinity with sheep, my name before I married was Woolley and we’ve always had woolly sheep as our unofficial family mascot. This card will be perfect to send to my Woolley relatives!

How to make a Super Simple Woolly Sheep Card

How to make your woolly sheep card:
Fold your coloured piece of card in half. Decide how best to arrange and overlap your cotton wool pads in order to make the body of a cuddly sheep and then using the PVA glue, glue the cotton wool pads onto the card. Leave the glue to dry for a little while.

While the glue is drying, take your black card and draw the shape of a sheep’s head on it. Carefully cut it out. Using glue, stick the googly eyes into place, leave to dry if need be. Using more glue, stick the sheep’s head onto the cotton wool pad body.

Then using the black felt tip pen, draw on two legs below the body of the sheep. Your card is now complete, though you might want to leave the glue to dry before you write your card and pop it in the post!

Who will you send your woolly sheep card to?

One of my favourite sights in spring is new-born lambs, we often pay our local community farm a visit, just so we can take a turn feeding the orphan lambs. Recently we’ve been doing quite a lot of spring themed crafts, so it felt natural to make something a bit sheepish, so we made this really simple Woolly Sheep Pencil Topper. It’s so cute we might make a herd of them to top all the pencils in our pencil pot.

Like I said, they really are incredibly simple to make. All you need are a few bits and pieces and no more than ten minutes of your time. If you don’t have a circular cotton wool pad (the type usually used to remove make up) then you could use a circle of plain white card instead. I think the cotton wool makes the woolly sheep pencil topper extra woolly though.

To make your Woolly Sheep Pencil Topper:
Take your cotton wool pad and fold it in half. Cut a slit about a centimetre from the top and another one about a centimetre from the bottom. This is to thread your pencil through.

Take your black card and draw the shape of a sheep’s head on it. Carefully cut it out. Using glue, stick the googly eyes into place, leave to dry if need be.

Using more glue, stick the sheep’s head onto the cotton wool pad body. Again, leave this to dry before threading the pencil through. Your Woolly Sheep Pencil Topper is now complete. Ewe can now use your pencil topper with pride!
