This is a twist on the famous Christmas song, "Feliz Navidad." The little sheep is showing off his fleece, which is simply made of pieces of cotton balls. This is fabulous all-ages craft. Happy holidays!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 card


  • blue card stock
  • scissors
  • green card stock
  • cotton balls
  • white glue
  • black felt
  • red felt
  • pen


  1. Fold your blue paper in half then cut to the desired card size.
  2. Cut a thin strip of the green cardstock and place it over the card horizontally. Trim the end so it's exactly the same width.
  3. Glue the green onto the blue.
  4. Cut a couple cotton balls into thirds.
  5. Roll the mini cotton pieces between your thumb and index finger to reshape into balls.
  6. Place little blobs of glue down in the center of the card and attach the mini cotton balls.
  7. Work your way down, making the body of the sheep, and stop well before the green line.
  8. To make the legs, cut 2 small rectangles from the black felt and round off the feet.
  9. Glue under the sheep's body and a bit onto the green strip.
  10. Add some tiny cotton balls at the top of the legs so you can't see the transition.
  11. To make the sheep's head, cut a black square of felt about the same width as the glue-on feet.
  12. Cut into a T-shape, then round off the edges to make the head and ears, as pictured. Do not glue head on body yet.
  13. Cut a T-shape out of the red felt, bigger than the head.
  14. Make little triangular cuts out of it until it looks like a bow.
  15. Glue down the bow.
  16. Attach the head so it's slightly overlapping the bow.
  17. Now cut even smaller pieces out of the small cotton balls left over and roll them between your fingers. Glue onto the top of the sheep's head.
  18. Write "Fleece Navidad" under the green line. I like to start from the middle of the wording and work my way outwards.
