Nisser are little Danish creatures that come bearing presents at Chrismas

I bought wooden pegs last year for a project that never happened and over the weekend I realised that they'd be a great starting point. Combined with wool/felt and a wooden bead they make interesting little nisse men.

Two things. 1. These little guys are adorable. I love their beards and hats and noses. 2. I've never heard of them before and I have a growing fascination with holiday traditions and folk lore from other countries. So thanks for introducing me to the Nisser!

These are very sweet!  I can imagine them on the Christmas tree or just lined up for a centerpiece on the table. Smiley Nice work!

I believe that Nisser are in Norway too, a Norwegian friend told us last Summer.

Anyway, yours are so adorable! LOVE them!  Cheesy
