  • Cotton balls

  • Pipe cleaners

  • Fabri-tac

  • Scissors

  • Sobo glue

  • Seed beads

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

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