#1. Cotton Wool Bunny
I don’t know about you but cotton wool balls always remind me of bunny tails. This project to make an adorable cotton wool bunny takes it a stage further using cotton wool for nearly all of the bunny. The instructions for how to make it are in Spanish but the pictures show you exactly what to do.

#2. Cotton Wool Snowman
To make this fun cotton wool snowman, first make a snowman shaped cardboard template and then get the kids to stick on the cotton balls to make the snowman. Stick on hats and arms and decorations like scarves and buttons. You could also make Olaf from Frozen.

#7. Cotton Ball Snow Decorations
This would be a good project for older kids and helping them learn sewing skills too. Jamiedphoto.com shows how they made the decorations using fishing twine and a glue gun, but you could do a simpler variation using thread and the cotton balls.

#8. Nest with Baby Birds Craft
This is a fun, cute craft project from Cindyderosier.com, combining paper plate craft with cotton wool craft. I like the way they have used different coloured cotton wool balls to make the different baby birds.
