It twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a…walnut?!?
Oh, ha ha! I meant a mouse.
Or did I?
My month-long Caker Christmas celebrations continue with this squeaklingly fun Christmas craft. Alls you need are walnuts, five minutes and a vision. Oh, and googly eyes.
Here’s how you make them:
1) Buy some walnuts. Make sure they’re still in the shell. Otherwise, your mice will look weird.
2) Take something sharp and split open the walnuts.
3) Scrape out the nuts and reserve for your next batch of Church Windows. Or mix with vanilla ice cream, top with maple syrup and serve to a senior. They go bonkers for maple walnut ice cream.
4) Glue some googly eyes onto the shell, along with a pompom for a nose and two for the ears. Take a pipe cleaner and twist it around your finger. Then glue the tail to the back of the shell.
It’s that easy! If you really want to get creative, put some wires in the nose for whiskers. Or make a miniature Santa Claus hat. Or a smart little pantsuit. The sky’s the limit!
See you back here on Friday for a tree-tastic recipe.
