Easy Sheep Craft Ideas for Sheep Craft Template

Sheep Coloring Pages

Sheep coloring pages are an ideal craft activity for kids who have a creative curiosity and deep appreciation for all things wooly.

They can practice coloring in black, grey, brown, and white to create realistic sheep images, or they can explore the unlimited possibilities of colors while adorning the woolly animals in whimsical rainbow pastels.

Coloring sheep brings a charming rusticity to any room as kids proudly display their treasured artwork. It’s also an excellent calm-down activity that fosters self-expression through art.

Sheep printouts offer a great way to learn about colors, shapes, and sizes — it’s fun, educational, and reaps a rewarding feeling of accomplishment.

Cotton Ball Sheep Craft

Cotton ball sheep crafts make a great rainy-day activity for kids looking to express their creative side. All you need is basic supplies such as cotton balls (or pom poms), pipe cleaners, buttons, and paper.

And not only is this super fun for young kids but it is also a great activity for developing their fine motor skills.

Create Sheep Stickers

If you’re looking for a fun way to show off your fondness for sheep and get creative, why not create some custom-made sheep stickers?

You can find free templates online to help you design something with the look and style you’re after. You don’t have to be an artist because it requires minimal artistic skill.

Plus, with stickers, there are countless ways to use them! Stick them around the house on furniture or picture frames.

Add a sheep sticker to your laptop lid or window display. Design a few sizes of sheep stickers and attach them to cards or gift bags.

Sheep craft template Cut-Out Felt

Use the template to trace the sheep’s head and sheep’s face, sheep’s body, sheep’s legs, and sheep’s tail onto felt. Then cut the shapes out of different colors of felt.

Attach the pieces together using fabric glue or fabric tape to create a 3D sheep. If desired, glue the felt pieces together to make an adorable sheep craft. You can also add beads for the sheep’s eyes or embellishments like yarn or flowers to give it a unique look.

Sheep Outline templates for Watercolor Painting

These sheep templates are great for watercolor painting – they allow you to practice your brushstrokes and color theory while making something beautiful.

Simply print out the template onto watercolor paper, then use a paintbrush and some watercolors to create a one-of-a-kind work of art.


Watercolor Brush Pen Sheep!

Watercolor brush pens may be used to color your sheep template. I use Tombow Brush Pens, and they are ideal for coloring artwork in a professional manner. They are also so much fun!

This is a fun and easy brush pen project that is great for both children and adults!

Watercolor brush pens are fantastic for adding a watercolor vibe to artwork.

To use the watercolor brush pens, simply outline your sheep with the brush pen and gently paint water over the ink to create a watercolor effect.


How to turn your Sheep Outlines into Sheep Stencils…

Here are some quick steps to get your template ready to use as a stencil for some sheep art…

  1. Open your free printable sheep template and select print.
  2. Choose the size you want to print from the drop-down menu.
  3. Print the stencil onto a mylar transparency sheet. (Alternatively, you may simply print the sheep template on a standard piece of paper and then trace it onto a piece of plastic mylar)
  4. Carefully cut out the shape of your sheep on a cutting mat.
  5. You can also simplify the cutting process by using a Cricut digital cutting machine. (I love mine, and it has made art-making so much easier.)
  6. Your stencil is now ready to use.
