Woolly Butter Lamb
Once, you get the base of the body down it is pretty easy from there. You shape the head & then begin making the wool. I wanted mine really woolly so I ended up using a cheese grater for thicker wool. I had fun once I saw the little lamb taking shape. Children would love to help make a Woolly Lamb.
- 1 lb
- butter, (whole solid pound or 4 sticks)
- fine mesh strainer, garlic press or a cheese grater
- red ribbon
- flag w/cross or flag w/alleluia
- black peppercorns for eyes or popcorn
- parsley, chervil or other herb for look of grazing
- olive, for nose and mouth
I did forget his neck and had to cut a slice of butter to lift his head. LOL
Make sure your butter doesn't get too soft or it won't look like wool anymore when pressed through.
(For many Polish families the butter lamb goes into a basket with other foods and items to be taken to the church and blessed by the priest.)

(This one was my back up and since it went well making the bigger one I may doctor this one up and make him woolly too. LOL
I will put him at the kids table since he is smaller in size.
John 1:29 --- The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! Here is a beautiful music video of Kirk Franklin singing "Precious Lamb of God".
