 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.

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 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.

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!

    This is a genius idea, I’m going to have to give it a go (glug)no hardship there! So clever and they look very like our Jacobs Sheep too! I wonder if I can make more animals up with a similar theme? I did do a pig winding pink wool round a toilet roll, I’ll see if I can convert it to this cork method. Thank you for sharing with me on #Trash2Treasure.

      Oh pigs would be really cute, of course you’d need a bottle of rose for that one!
