Cute Cork Sheep

little lamb - cork sheep

There is no lovelier sight than a English spring meadow full of cute little lambs.  We now have them in the house and garden too, and so can you!  All you need is a couple of corks (something I always seem to have - glug!), a few matchsticks, and some yarn.

cork sheep you will need

Gather your bits and pieces. Take one cork and cut it in half, then cut one of those halves into 2 semi circles.  Paint all your pieces and 4 of the matchsticks.

wind wool around cork

Wind the yarn around the whole cork, and stick a little to one end (the front). Use a Bradawl to make 4 holes to slot the legs into.

glue head pieces together

Stick the head pieces together, and use a half matchstick to attach the head to the body (using the Bradawl to again make the holes). We also used a slither of cork to make a tail.  Stand back and admire your cute little lamb!
