Colorful Flock of Craft Stick Sheep

Colorful Flock of Craft Stick Sheep @amandaformaro Amanda's Cookin'

There’s something about a rainbow of colors that makes a craft that much more fun. It’s a party for the eyes! When I first sat down to make these sheep, I was going to do a few black ones and that was it. Then I thought I might do black, gray and brown. That’s when it hit me to use colors. Why not? It’s a craft, who says they can’t be colorful, right?? So to see how I made these and to make some yourself, head over to my tutorial on Spoonful. Link below!

Colorful Flock of Craft Stick Sheep

What you need:

  • Jumbo craft sticks
  • Googly eyes
  • Craft paint in your choice of colors
  • Paper plate
  • 7 cotton balls per sheep
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors

What you do:

  1. Paint the craft sticks and allow them to dry completely.
  2. Add some white craft glue to each craft stick, leaving the top and bottom untouched.
  3. Stick 3 cotton balls on the craft stick in the glue.
  4. Add some glue to the sides of those three cotton balls and stick two additional cotton balls to both sides.
  5. Using the same color paints as you did for the craft sticks, paint small patches of color onto a paper plate.
  6. Cut out tear drop shapes, 2 from each color, for the sheep ears. Glue the ears to the backs of the craft sticks and glue googly eyes in place.

I originally made this project for Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.
