Sheep and a Smile

This was such a fun project. I was surfing around and found an awesome family site called I am amazed at the projects this man has created. Plus, he has a tutorial for each one.

They are all right up our alley, since we love recycled crafts...mainly because they are very very inexpensive. (Usually) 

We made one small one and one large one. I have to say that we tried to spray paint the straws so the legs were black, but it was a big mess and we were a bit impatient. We caved and used the unpainted straws instead. My husband suggested placing the straws on a long nail hammered up right into a board prior to painting them. He is so smart. 

These sheep have endless possibilities. You could add a ribbon, a bell, even color the cotton balls.

"Mommy, can I keep them?"

I hope you enjoy trying this craft and please visit "The Professor" at
