Cute sheep photo frame


This sheep photo frame is surprisingly easy and cheap to make. It's a very cute addition for any bedroom wall. It would also make a lovely birthday, Easter or Mother's Day gift.

Time: 45 minutes
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's
Level: Medium

Materials
1 A4 sheet thick cream and/or white card. My card was cream on one side and white on the other so I managed to cut all components out of one piece of card.
1 A5 sheet thin white card
Black pen
Strong glue
Small piece of ribbon
Sticky tape
Scissors and craft knife

Low cost materials

Draw out two rectangles 14cm wide x 18 cm high
Draw a smaller rectangle 9.5cm wide x 13 cm high in the middle of one of the large rectangles

Frame ready to cut


Cut out the two large rectangles and cut out the smaller rectangular window. I used a craft knife to cut out the window as it was neater than using scissors.

Frame cut out


Cut out a head for your sheep, some curly wool, two ears and two hooves. My card was cream on one side and white on the other so I used both colours but you could just make your sheep all white or black.

From your thinner white card, cut out a triangular neck connector and two leg connectors

Apply strong PVA glue around the left, bottom and right hand sides of the front of the frame (the rectangle with the window cut out). You will need to be able to slide your photo into your frame from the top, so make sure you don't put glue along the top edge or too close to the inner edges of the window.

Apply glue along the three lower edges, making sure you don't get glue along the top of the window or too close to the inside edges


Stick the front of the frame onto the large rectangle

Make your ribbon into a loop. Glue on to the back of the sheep's head and when dry add some sticky tape for extra strength.
