Christmas goat

Christmas goat is a traditional festive decoration in the Scandinavian countries. It is often made from straw. I propose to make a toy-motanku Christmas goat out of thread.
For work you will need:
-2 cocktail straws;
- insulating tape or adhesive tape;
-foil;
- woolly threads;
-scissors;
-glue.

1. Make the goat's body.
Take a straw and cut along 1/3 of its part from one end and from the other. From the second straw cut 1/3 length.

Fold the cut ends along the first straw.

It turned out the torso with legs. Now attach to the body of the neck. To do this, take the second straw. The part that she has cut along is the front legs, they need to be connected to the front legs on the first straw using tape. Also wrap back legs with tape to give them hardness.

Now we tie the toy face. Make cuts on the neck.

2. Create a bulk invoice.
We need foil.Unwrap pieces of it, about 15 cm long, and gradually wrap the goat around her, creating his three-dimensional body.

Combine every three pieces of thread into one, in order to get a spit plump. Weave a pigtail.

On the same principle, make a second horn and tail.
5. Last touches.
The resulting goat is already very good. You can leave everything as it is, or you can take a rough brown thread and once again wrap a goat around it.This option seems to me more interesting.
