This is our favourite Year of the Ox craft! He's easy to make but so effective - perfect for decorating the house for Chinese New Year. He is also fun to add to a Nativity scene at Christmas.
You will need:
4 dolly clothes pegs (old fashioned kind, available from craft suppliers)
Cream (or white) craft foam
Paint the ball, toilet roll and pegs brown and leave to dry.
Glue the ball to one end of the toilet roll tube. Glue 2 pegs to each side of the tube.
From the cream foam, cut two horns and an oval for the nose. Glue these to the face.
To finish, add two eyes and draw on nostrils and a mouth.
