Last year, I made the cardboard tube lamb from memory then later wished I had printed the instructions & watched the video. In spite of my mistakes, the cardboard tube lamb stands on its own & is still cute. This year, I'm printing the instructions & watched the video. The paper towel tubes will be cut into 2-1/4 inch tubes not 4 inch tubes. The stiff black felt head & black pom pom ball tail will be glued on the sides of the tubes not ends of the tubes. This is the most adorable lamb craft! Is there a bunny hat craft or Easter wreath craft?
