1. Get dye of the desired color

Whatever color you want to paint the sheep, you'll need dye of that color. In Creative, just select the color of dye you desire. If you're in Survival mode, it's still easy: collect some flowers and craft these into dye on the crafting table. Tip: you can combine two different dye colors to create a new dye color on the crafting table.

2. Hold the dye in your hand and find a sheep

Yup, simply walk up to the sheep with the dye in hand.

3. Do LT on Xbox or use the non-attacking hand on the sheep

That's it! Whatever device you use, use the non-attacking on the sheep; typically the control that handles your left hand. Now the sheep is dyed the color of your dye!
