Every time I see this little Pom-Pom Sheep I recently made, I hug and wiggle it so the little arms and legs dangle. It’s completely irresistible, and if you make this with your kids, I promise you they’re going to love it as much as I do.
I mean, how could anyone not love a fluffy pom-pom sheep?!
What You Need:
Plastic Easter egg (approximately 3″x 5″)
White acrylic paint
Approximately 110 1″ white pom-poms
Hot glue and gun
Printable sheep head pattern
2 (10mm) wiggle eyes
Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
12 (1/2″) black pom-poms
2 (1″) black pom-poms
2 (1 1/2″) black pom-poms
- I have to credit Hobby Lobby for the inspiration. I spotted a photo idea on their site a while back, and used that to figure out how to make my little farm fuzzy. First I had to find an over-sized plastic egg. Easy! I painted it white and let it dry. It doesn’t matter if the paint is sloppy; it’s just for background.
2. Now for the fun part! Hot glue white pom-poms all over the egg — everywhere!
3. Using my free printable pattern, cut a sheep face out of black felt, use tacky glue to attach the wiggle eyes and then hot glue it to the body.
4. All that’s left is to string together the pom-pom pom arms and legs. Double up the thread for extra strength and knot one end. String one 1-inch black pom-pom followed by three 1/2-inch black pom-poms. Leave a tiny bit of slack so the arm will be wiggly. Tie off the chain of pom-poms with a knot. Repeat for the other arm.
5. To make the legs, you’ll follow the same procedure, but string one 1-1/2-inch black pom-pom and three 1/2-inch black pom-poms for each one. Hot glue into place on the sheep’s body. If it’s a girl sheep (and that’s up to you), you could glue a tiny pastel-colored bow on her head. 😉
Now your sweet little pom-pom sheep is ready for Easter!
