This site is dedicated to all dads but will be of special relevance to the single dad. Remember, you are half the reason your children exist and they need you whether you live with them or not.

Make a sheep from wool... that makes sense

pompom Shaun the sheep


There's something ironic about making a sheep from wool, but it does have a certain obvious ring about it. This FREE download includes the template for the wool rings youíll need to make your pompom sheep and special image printouts (ready to be cut out) for the head and legs (lower down on this page). Don't worry if you don't have white or cream coloured wool, pompom sheep come in all the colours of the rainbow.
. . . You could make a whole farm of sheep, just like Gromitís friend Shaun and his gang, and whatís really cool about pompoms, is that you can really shear them (ok, trim them with scissors) to make them look as shorn as you want. Look what happened to our pompom sheep when we took our kitchen scissors to it! If you really want to make your pompom fluffy sheep look just like Shaun, before you stick the legs on your pompom sheep, have had a look at our latest advanced model of Shaun the Sheep. All you need is an old sock and a glue gun and your sheep will have a woolly jumper to keep him warm, just like Shaunís.

pompom made from a plastic carrier bagAnd now you don't even need wool to make a pompom, so you can get going on this project right away! An orange sheep... I don't think so, but then plenty of plastic carrier bags come in white, and if you use a black bin liner (refuse sack) then you really could make the black sheep of the family. Yes, a great way to reuse those plastic grocery bags, is by using them to make your pompoms. If you tie off the pompom with more plastic bag, then you can still recycle the finished pompom as if it was a normal plastic bag. You can also use black, white or green dustbin liners, or sandwich bags, which come in a range of subtle colours. Plastic bag pompoms will work for any of the Funky Pompom projects on dadcando. To make them all you do is replace the wool steps with the plastic bag. To make it easier to thread, you might want to cut the bag into wide strips, but as long as you can thread the bag through the centre of the discs then it's ok. A plastic bag pompom has a glossy slippery finish that is much softer than you would imagine and is a good alternative to wool.


The pompom instructions and printable graphic templates are so simple to follow. They give amazing results and are available in either A4 or US Letter formats, just click on the size you need to download.

Over the next few months, we are going to slowly develop this section to show all the other creative projects that you have been working on. What we'd like to see are pictures of projects that do not use dadcando instructions. If we like them enough, we might even make proper dadcando projects out of them and put your name on them as designer and inventor of that project. Just send us a picture with a few words about why or how you did it, or if you have the time a full description for someone else to follow, so that they can make it too.
