Chestnut animals

Yesterday I found some chestnuts, a sure sign of fall coming.

The chestnuts are so beautiful when they are new, and I remembered how we always made different animals and figures out of the chestnuts when the kids were young. It is a very nice way to spend a fall afternoon with the family.

So I went home and made these two, very simple, chestnut animals.

If you are making something out of chestnuts, I would be glad if you would send me a picture – then I will post it here on my blog. You can use my contact-page on

For this first small strange animal I used a couple of eyes that I have for all kinds of things.




This chestnut crawler has eyes made of thumbtacks. In this light I think it looks a little scary!
