New Lamb Sculpture Pattern for Paper Mache, in Two Sizes

This lamb pattern creates all the shapes for you, so no sculpting experience is required.

This adorable newborn lamb is easy to make, with the pattern, some cereal box cardboard, and a layer of paper strips and paste or paper mache clay.

You can display her on a shelf as part of your decor, give her as a gift – or use the lamb as a photo prop with your own newborn baby. She’d also look lovely in a Christmas creche, or as decoration for Vacation Bible School. 

How to Make Your Lamb Sculpture:

Put the downloadable pattern on cereal box cardboard and cut out the pieces.

How to Add Wool With Paper Mache Clay:

To make your lamb sculpture you will need:

  • Access to a Printer
  • Copy paper or full-sheet labels
  • Glue stick if using copy paper instead of labels
  • For a small lamb, you’ll need the front and back from from 3 standard-sized cereal boxes, or 5 pieces of letter-sized “light chipboard*” that you can purchase online. You’ll also need a piece of corrugated cardboard for the bottom piece, about 8” by 14” (20.32 x 35.56 cm).
  • For a large lamb, you’ll need 4 cereal boxes or 7 pieces of light chipboard, and a piece of corrugated cardboard for the bottom piece, about 10” x 18” (25.4 x 45.72 cm).

  • Sharp scissors for cutting cereal box cardboard and box cutter for corrugated cardboard.
  • Clear plastic tape and masking tape. Note: Don’t use disappearing gift wrap tape – it isn’t strong enough.
  • A small amount of aluminum foil for sculpting details.
  • Foam ball for the eyes – 0.9” (2.2 cm) for the small lamb, or 1.25” (3.175 cm) for the large lamb.
  • Paper strips and paste or paper mache clay (I used both for my lamb, but it’s up to you).
  • Acrylic gesso or latex primer
  • Acrylic paint and acrylic varnish.

* If purchasing cardboard in place of the cereal boxes, it will be sold as “light chipboard.” Medium or heavy chipboard is too stiff to bend well.

  1. I found this lamb while searching your other creations.
    I am a monkey fanatic and was actually hoping you had a pattern for your chimpanzee sculpt. I will love you forever if you do. :-) ?

    • Hi Carlton. I do have a chimpanzee mask pattern, but you must be talking about my chimp sculpture that I made quite a few years ago. I don’t have a pattern for it, and I gave him away when I moved. Sorry. :(

  2. Hi!! I love your patterns. I would love to do a sheep head! Do you have a pattern available for a sheep head?
