Baa Baa Black-Faced Sheep

Baa Baa Black-Faced Sheep

10 Little Black-Faced Sheep


These little cuties were such fun to make.

Wouldn't they add a country look to your Christmas tree?
Where can ornaments be hung, other than a tree?
Windows
Lampshades
Chandeliers
Wreaths

and on any place with an empty hook!

The Scottish Blackface is the most common breed of domestic sheep 
in the United Kingdom. This tough and adaptable breed
 is often found in the more exposed locations, 
such as the Scottish Highlands or roaming on the moors of Dartmoor.

Each sheep is approximately 6" wide.
A rusty star and rusty bell have been added to the hanger.
$5.00 each plus postage. Paypal is available.

All of the buttons are wired and free standing. The glass salt shakers are filled with various ingredients such as salt, salt & glitter combo and popcorn. Each shaker is accessorized with a matching ribbon and an ornament that is glued to the front of the bottle.

The kits will contain:
