30 minutes

  • 2 chestnuts
  • 7 matches
  • 2 pins with white heads
  • a mini rosehip for the nose
  • 1 little hedgehog
  • 2 round rosehips
  • 2 small dried birch branches
  • 2 small wooden discs (craft shop)
  • Piece of fabric approx. 12 x 2 cm (tweed looks nice here)

For the landscape:

  • Artificial snow from the valley
  • Fir trees made of glass (z.

    From Sia)

    Body:

    1. Possibly Drill holes in both chestnuts with a nail.

    2. Approx. 2 cm from a match. Put both chestnuts together.

    Legs:

    1. For the legs, drill four holes in the lower chestnuts and insert whole matches so that the red firing heads are down.

    Poor:

    1. In the lower chestnut, pre-drill two holes for the arms with a nail. Two round rosehips at the end of the matches make up the hands.

    2. Put the birch branches in the rosehips for the ski poles.

    Head:

    1. Put mini rosehip as nose in the middle of the upper chestnut. If necessary, pre-drill a small hole with a pin.

    2. Two pins with white heads make up the eyes. Cut needles with pliers.

    Headwear:

    The acorn hat is holding with hot glue.

    Two small wooden discs serve as skis. Just put males on it. Tie piece of fabric around the neck as a scarf.
