I have very fond memories of one of the ornaments that hangs on my Mom's tree: some little mice sleeping in walnut shells that my sister and I made when we were wee Girl Scouts. I knew for sure I wanted to make some for my own tree, so I asked my Mom to send me a picture of them so I could re-create them.
Well...maybe my memory is failing or maybe I like to look at the world through rose-colored glasses, but apparently those cute, sweet little mice actually look like this:
|Umm...not exactly how I'd pictured them.|
So this ornament is a little bit of an improvement, but the new version is definitely sweet and cute.
You will need
- A walnut
- A filbert (also known as a hazelnut)
- Some fabric and felt scraps
