Cotton-Ball Lamb




  • Cotton balls
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Fabri-tac
  • Scissors
  • Sobo glue
  • Seed beads
  • Cotton cosmetic pads


  1. Step 1

    Make the body. Unroll 15 cotton balls into strips. Make three layers of 5 cotton strips arranged side by side. Lay a 6-inch pipe cleaner at one end and roll cotton strips around it. Bend pipe cleaner at a right angle 2 1/2 inches from one end for the neck. Bend again one inch from the end to make the head. Fold end of pipe cleaner under the body to hold. Unroll 2 more cotton balls and wrap around body to make proportional to the head.

  2. Step 2

    To make the tail, unroll one cotton ball and divide in half lengthwise. Twist cotton until it forms a cord that doubles on itself. Cut to 1 1/2 inches and glue end with Fabri-tac. Glue to back end of lamb body.

  3. Step 3

    To craft feet, for each foot, unroll one cotton ball and divide it lengthwise. Roll strip into a flat spiral and glue the end to hold. Pinch into an almond shape. Cut a 3/4-inch piece of pipe cleaner and bend in half. Glue to narrow end of cotton shape. Repeat process for all four feet. Glue to bottom of lamb body.

  4. Step 4

    Make the face. Use Sobo glue to pinch the front of the head into a "snout." Glue seed beads on for eyes.

  5. Step 5

    For the ears, cut lamb ear shapes out of cotton cosmetic pads. Glue onto head with Fabri-tac.
