Hope everyone enjoys my Christmas Ornament Craft from this year, I started on November 18th, took me almost every spare minute of every day to complete 24 for family and friends. My mom and Sisters were blown away.

They are made out of 1 1/4" doll heads, and 1 1/2" ball knobs, the snout is made out of a 1/2" wooden bead, the arms are made out of chenille stems, hands are made out of 10mm wooden beads, the feet are made from wooden teardrops (clipped with figernails clippers and sanded to get the bottom of foot rounded), the ears are cut out of craft foam sheets (to achieve a near perfect circle I use the butt end of an old golf club shaft and press real hard and twist in one direction or the other. One day I hope to do a tutorial with step by step pictures. I also use dowel rods to secure all the main body parts together with plain old wood glue, the ears, feet and knit hats are super glued on. Oh yeah the knit hats are made out of a toddler's high rise sock 6 - 18 mos (WalMart) 10 pair in a pk for 6.47. The only draw back is the color choice is limited. I almost forgot, the noses are made from clay, I push the whiskers into the clay while it is soft, then put in the oven.

neato, I thought they might have been made all from clay but couldn't figure out the feet and ears Smiley
