~ Show and Tell ~

Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Kelli, over at "There is no place like home "is our host.

When I was decorating a few weeks ago, I pulled this little handmade ornament out of the box and immediately thought of Kelli. She loves acorns! So Kelli, here's an idea for a project for you and the kids.
Isn't he cute?

His head is an acorn...I love how the top looks like a tossle cap!...and his body is a walnut. He has Popsicle sticks (cut 2 inches long) for skis and toothpicks for the poles.His arms are just strips of red felt, about a half inch wide. Add another strip of felt for his scarf and your done!

Why don't you join us...
Since this is Christmas week, do you have a favorite ornament that you made or one that has a special memory to go with it?

Yes, he's so cute indeed! I am sure Kelli will adore it! Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

When I was a little girl, we used to make such little people (or even animals) from chestnuts... ;-))

Best wishes,
Anita

That is so adorable! I can see a whole lot of them placed with a Christmas village and don't ask me why, but he reminds me of Snoopy! Too cute!

Suzy,
That is the cutest little fellow I've ever seen! I'm glad I didn't put all of my acorns away, I can't wait to make myself one! Thank you for thinking of me. :0)
