      If you are looking for a super-easy craft to make as a gift, this is the ideal project. This sweet little lamb makes a wonderful teacher’s gift, pencil holder for mom’s desk, or a candy or coin holder for your kids!

      What you’ll need:

      Empty tin vegetable can, washed and dried
      Liquitex Basics Gesso
      Large paint brush
      45-50 cotton balls (couple of handfuls)
      One-half of a sheet of black felt
      Two medium wiggle eyes
      Small black pom pom
      Eight-inch piece of colored ribbon
      White craft glue (Tacky Glue)
      How to make it:
      First, parents may need to use a piece of sandpaper or an Emory board to file off any sharp edge around the opening of the can. Many cans come with flip-top lids now and these are ideal as there are no sharp edges.
      Paint the outside of the can with one coat of Gesso. This will help the glue stick to the can as well as provide a white background in case your little ones leave any gaps between cotton balls. Allow to dry.
      Glue cotton balls onto the can, start at the bottom and work your way around the can. Then move up a layer and go all the way around again. Repeat this process until can is completely covered.
      From the black felt, cut out two ears (the shape of a capital letter D without the middle cut out) and two hooves. The hooves are just two small squares, round the edges of one end and cut a small triangle at the bottom for the toe.
      Glue ears and feet in place.
      Glue on wiggle eyes.
      Glue on pom pom for nose.
      Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow. Trim the ends and glue below the nose.

      This is very easy for little ones. Show them how to do the first few cotton balls and they will be able to do the rest on their own!
      Use any color bow you like. Curling ribbon that you may have handy from previous birthday wrappings works perfectly.
      There are can openers on the market that do not leave sharp edges. If you don’t have one, just be sure that you use sandpaper or a nail file to sand any points off.
