Yarn Sheep Ornament

Materials:
  • Yarn (white or black)
  • Felt (white or black)
  • Ribbon
  • Small bells
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • A large eye, heavy guage needle

 

 

 

Directions:
  1. Wrap yarn around a piece of cardboard or the fingers on your hand, about 60 times. Tie the center with another smaller piece of yarn, and then cut the loops, to make a pom-pom ball.
  2. Cut out a sheep's head from the felt and glue onto the front of the pom-pom ball. Glue small bell onto front of sheep right below his face.
  3. This is the hard part (an adult should help with): thread a piece of ribbon through the needle and push the needle and ribbon through the center of the pom-pom sheep.
  4. Hang on tree. Make a few to share with family and friends.
