But the body of the lamb is made volumetric with the help of ordinary cotton wool: lubricating small pieces of the body with glue, putting small cotton balls on them.In order to make the balls more dense and even, we prepare them in advance: we detach the pieces of cotton wool from the roll and push into the tightly compressed cam until the cam is not tightly stuffed. We pour the resulting lumps into the container and re-fill the cam to the limit. Also, interesting snowmen are made of cotton wool.

You can do without wool. For example, to make an application of symmetric elements with a wavy edge.To do this: fold a sheet of white or beige paper in half (under the color of the sheep's wool), draw the heart so that its middle was on the fold of the sheet. Cut out the heart with relief scissors (if they are not, then you can cut it with ordinary scissors, forming a wavy edge at the same time). We do:

  • three such hearts are bigger - for the head and legs,
  • one smaller - cutting it in half, getting ears
  • one very small, from pink paper - this will be the center of the ears (it will also be cut in half)
  • one very large - the main one - the heart for the body
  • two small hearts - additional ones, also for the body of the lamb.

Start collecting the figure: on the top of the main heart, glue two additional ones to give the figure a larger volume.

At the center of the main heart, glue the head of the lamb, on either side of it - the ears, inside which fix the pink "cores of." For the front legs, the heart is cut in half and glued them at the level of the middle part of the body, and the second heart - hind legs - glues down the body.

Postcards with such an ornament look very elegant and New Year's, because the picture is very reminiscent of winter frost patterns.
